Happy National Crayon Day! Some of us may still be working remotely, homeschooling kids, very likely social-distancing from others, etc. (but we can probably all agree the quarantine lifestyle has definitely been a challenge!). One thing that can help keep both kids and adults entertained? Crafts. In honor of today’s “holiday,” Crayola is offering up some great online resources for both.

The company’s 4-in-1 National Crayon Day Crafts require art materials you likely already have in your house, such as crayons, markers, cardstock and glue. On the list of crafts you and your little one can make together? Melted Crayon Butterflies, Crayon Art T-Shirts, Crayon Letter Decoration and Melted Crayon Canvas Art. If that’s not enough, check out the free printable coloring pages on Crayola’s website, including some with your children’s favorite characters and some geared towards adults who want to join in on the fun.

The best part? Not only are these crafts something you and your little one may be able to do together one afternoon, but they might be a great way to ease any anxiety you may be feeling.
