    Just took a look at Amazon for ideas for our youngest (6yo). Here are some ideas I found that will work:

    Felt ornament sewing kits (all supplies included)

    Felt woodland animal sewing kit (all supplies included)

    Faber-Castell Do Art Coloring with Clay – Modeling Clay Art for Kids

    Feel free to add ideas! I will try to add some as I come across them too!

    Sigh…. my post got eaten.  I guess I posted too many links.  Anyway, here are some felt crowns made by my kids.  I cut the wool, but my 5- and 6-year-olds were able to do the sewing all on their own.  They also go quickly and can be done in an afternoon.  🙂  http://ourhappy-goldenyears.blogspot.com/2020/09/felt-crowns.html

    My 5-, 6-, and 10-year-olds recently made felt crowns.  They were simple enough to finish in an afternoon.  The pieces I got are about 9″x12″.  I folded them in half and cut the spikes across the edges.  My boys did blanket stitch (tutorial here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S9zegUYdPmg )  The folded edge is the bottom of the crown.  Then just stitch some elastic on.  Use fray block on the ends of the elastic!  The jewels were made with scraps from other projects.

    I can’t figure out how to post a photo here, so here are pictures on my blog: https://ourhappy-goldenyears.blogspot.com/2020/09/felt-crowns.html

    The crowns are adorable! That was a great idea to pre-cut them and let them have at it! I especially like that they made one for their younger sibling! 🙂

    My kids have enjoyed origami and Paper Sloyd at that age.  We buy fancy scrapbook paper for Sloyd, and they love picking out special paper.

    We did pillowcases on the sewing machine when my kids were younger (with mom’s help).  They loved this!    We also did drawstring bags.  Last year we did the hand sewing SCM dvd as a family, and I had my 5 year old do some of the projects, but I did a lot of the sewing for him (his attention span wasn’t quite there yet).  A more focused 6 year old might do well with it.

    My kids love clay (we do both air dry or baked).  I like the air dry because I don’t have to help my youngest with the oven.  😉 My 6yo currently loves making Minecraft figures from the clay.

    I also wanted to share this site: https://weefolkart.com/

    We’ve done many projects from here over the years!
