Colorful and Creative Nail Polish Crafts for Kids

Save this idea for later!

We love creative craft projects for kids, which is why we’re always on the hunt for new fun projects like these nail polish crafts. It’s a fun STEAM project to try when you want something a bit less serious than science experiments for kids.

Now that Monkey is 11, she’s ready to move on from paper crafts to crafts for teens and tweens. Monkey is always getting bottles of nail polish for birthdays and other holidays, so she has quite the collection now, and she would never be able to paint her nails enough to use them all up.

So, I put together a list of different nail polish crafts for kids for her to use as inspiration for making her own nail polish projects. All the projects in this list are kid-friendly nail polish crafts, so you don’t have to worry about something being beyond the skill level of a tween or teen.

Nail polish isn't just for nails! These nail polish crafts for kids are kid-friendly nail polish crafts and are simple and fun for kids!

Use these nail polish crafts at your next sleepover or girls’ get-together for lots of giggles and fun! Kids will love creating their own twist on these crafts.

Pro tip: Keep nail polish remover on hand to quickly wipe up any spills. Let the kids do these projects on a tile floor or other surface that won’t be damaged by nail polish or nail polish remover.

Make sure the kids wear old clothes when making these nail polish crafts for kids that you don’t mind getting ruined!
