Peruvian-Themed Crafts for Kids

This week, we're continuing our study of Peru. Today, I'm focusing on Peruvian crafts for kids including art activities and printables.

If you missed it, be sure to check out my list of children's books that feature Peru.

Peruvian Crafts for Children

Here's a list of hands-on crafts for kids to make as they explore Peru. Some of them are a little more involved, so I've tried to divide them up into crafts for younger kids and those for older ones. 

For Younger Kids

  • Peruvian Masks
    That Artist Woman has the most beautiful and creative craft for children! Your children/students will absolutely love making these golden masks of the Inca. They are amazing. (Grades 2 and up)

  • Peruvian Bird Gourd Craft
    Discovering the World Through My Son's Eyes
    shares this colorful activity from the book, A Kid’s Guide to Latino History: More than 50 Activities.

  • Peruvian Siku Flute
    PBS has this simple craft for making your own siku flutes. You probably have all the materials already!

  • Llama Headband Craft
    Here's a cute craft activity from Simple Everyday Mom that you kids will enjoy assembling and then wearing.

  • Peruvian Arpillera Art
    I love this activity that teaches students about Peruvian arpilleras. Kids & Glitter shares such a clever way to introduce kids to this unique art. 

For Older Children
