Tissue Paper Crafts for Kids

These tissue paper crafts for kids are simple and fun to make! We love crafting with tissue paper because it is cheap and easy to find, doesn’t take up a lot of room for storage, and it’s very simple to use. We even save the bits of leftover tissue paper for use in other projects, so nothing goes to waste!

10 Tissue Paper Crafts for Kids

Here are 10 of our favorite tissue paper crafts for kids:

Makes a great (and useful) gift! All you need is some tissue paper, Washable Mod Podge for Kids, and a plain clipboard from the dollar store.

2. Tissue Paper Flowers

Here’s a video tutorial that shows how quick and easy it is to make tissue paper flowers. Great for use as party decorations, gift-giving as a bouquet, or simply to dress up a gift-wrapped package!

A beautiful handmade gift idea. These candle votives are simple to make, and the results are beautiful!

7. Spring Branch Craft

Here’s a bright and cheerful craft that even very young crafters can make. Great practice for developing those important fine-motor skills too!

8. Stunning “Glass” Sculpture

The neat thing about this “glass” sculpture project is that it can be shaped over and over again, allowing kids to experiment with form and balance! All you need is some tissue paper, clear contact paper, and thin gauge wire. Full tutorial here.

9. Easy Reverse Resist Paintings

This is a fun project to try with bleeding art tissue paper (not to be confused with regular tissue paper). It’s a great low-mess alternative to paint!

10. Garden “Welcome” Banner

A lovely garden craft that kids can make to brighten up any garden (or yard) space! It’s a great use of all those leftover bits of tissue paper you may have been saving.
