My son enjoys making stuff, but there are certain crafts that really get him excited. Superhero crafts. Star Wars crafts. Things that he can go and play with. The ones where he turns to me and says ‘thank you mummy’ with a look of glee in his eyes. I’m sure that lots of these are things that girls would like to make too (my daughter is obsessed with Batman and I’m hardly going to tell her that she can’t do ‘boy stuff’) but I also know that there are some crafts that boys will do and some crafts that boys will really, really want to do. So this is my little round up of the coolest and most fun crafts for boys, the ones they’ll thank you for.
