We’ve covered geometric crafts and polka dots so it was just a matter of time for stripes to come up next! Stripes are a fun way to modernize anything from play tents to growth charts, canvas bags or toy containers. You can keep it to monochromatic colors or go wild with all sorts of vibrant hues. Stripes are easy shapes for kids to start painting or coloring in right away (little can go wrong with going down one big line!). Take a look at these fun stripe projects you can make for and with the kids. Lots of good home project ideas here too!
