As a socially conscious content creator with a heart for mental health and well-being, I’m always looking for ways to make my life easier and more fun. One of the ways I do this is by spending time with my kids and creating crafts together.
Labor Day is a great opportunity to get together with family and friends and celebrate the contributions of workers. It’s also a great opportunity to do some fun and easy crafts with your kids.
Here are a few ideas for easy Labor Day crafts for kids:
1. Paper plate Labor Day wreath
This craft is super easy and fun for kids of all ages. All you need is a paper plate, some red, white, and blue construction paper, and some glue.
To make the wreath, start by cutting out a hole in the center of the paper plate. Then, cut out strips of the construction paper and glue them to the rim of the paper plate. You can also glue on some stars and stripes to decorate the wreath.
2. Labor Day flag
This craft is a bit more challenging than the wreath, but it’s still easy to do with kids. All you need is some red, white, and blue construction paper, a glue stick, and a pair of scissors.
To make the flag, start by cutting out two pieces of construction paper, one red and one white. The red piece should be slightly larger than the white piece. Then, glue the white piece onto the red piece.
Next, cut out a rectangle of blue construction paper. The rectangle should be slightly smaller than the red and white pieces. Glue the blue rectangle onto the red and white pieces, so that it is centered.
Finally, cut out a strip of blue construction paper and glue it to the top of the flag, to represent the union.
3. Labor Day handprint craft
This craft is perfect for younger kids. All you need is some white construction paper, some red, white, and blue paint, and a paintbrush.
To make the craft, have your child dip their hand into the red paint and press it onto the construction paper. Then, have them dip their hand into the white paint and press it next to the red handprint. Finally, have them dip their hand into the blue paint and press it next to the white handprint.
Let the paint dry completely, and then you can cut out the handprints and glue them to a piece of cardstock.

As a full-time RV nomad, I love doing crafts with my kids on the go. These crafts are all easy to do and require minimal supplies, so they’re perfect for camping trips and other outdoor adventures.
I hope you and your kids enjoy these Labor Day crafts!
