It's never too early to start arts and crafts with your kids, and UltraClear epoxy resin is the perfect product to have them work with. Kids love epoxy resin because it is safe, non-toxic, easy to use, and is a lot of fun.
Below we’ve listed 6 epoxy resin arts and crafts projects that you can do with your kids in no time at all.
With the holiday season right around the corner, ornament making with epoxy resin is a fantastic activity you can do with kids of all ages. Simply mix epoxy and glitter together, place a string in the middle of it like an ornament hanger, pour the epoxy resin into your preferred mold, and let it dry. Then your kids can decorate their ornaments to make them really unique.
2. Decorative Pins
If you have some old t-shirts lying around that are no longer wearable because they're ripped up at all different parts of the sleeve, epoxies will help transform them into different wearable shapes. Simply cut off any frayed fabric on the shirt with scissors before applying epoxy resin to both surfaces and letting it cure for three hours, thus making a decorative pin.
The best thing about this project is that you don't need many supplies. You can also make pins from items found in nature like leaves, twigs, and even acorns!
3. Fun Family Photos
Epoxy resin is an easy and inexpensive way to create framed family photos. Simply take the picture you want to be framed, clean it with glass cleaner or rubbing alcohol, then use the epoxy paste on both sides. They'll dry in three hours and will last for years without fading. Plus, you can hang them anywhere and shape the epoxy however you want to make them hang or stand up straight.
Anyone with kids knows that coasters are essential to keeping tabletops clean from water stains, which is why making coasters with your children is both a fun and practical arts and crafts project you can do together.
Kids can create their own artwork on paper, plastic, or cardboard, and then apply epoxy resin to shape it into a coaster. The epoxy resin coasters are water-resistant and can make great gifts for family friends.
4. Table Toppers
You can also make epoxy resin table top coverings with your children.
Cover the epoxy resin with something like leaves, shells, or sand to create a table topper for your kids' play area. You can even use epoxy resin to mold into shapes like animals or certain characters.
5. Kids Furniture
Create epoxies of different colors using food coloring (or any color), put them into a container together, then apply them onto cardboard cutouts of chairs, sofas, end tables, or any type of furniture designed for children.

Epoxy resin is most commonly used for DIY home projects, specifically for coating surfaces to keep them from wear and tear. It is also often mixed with a hardener to create epoxy putty that can be used in sculpture projects or even home repairs. You may also mix it with paints for unique artwork creations.
