Encanto Crafts for Kids

Well, “we’re not talking about Bruno”, but we’re talking about Encanto! The latest Disney movie that enchanted our hearts and took the world by storm (sorry Moana, but everyone’s talking about that magical new family now!). It is therefore natural to want a collection of Encanto crafts for kids! For me, Encanto-inspired crafting is Colombia-inspired crafting! So I’ve pulled out all of our favorite kid-relevant crafts that I think you’ll love too!

Encanto inspired crafts for kids
We love the Disney Encanto!

If you love this latest movie full of magic and want to recreate some fun at home, check out the selection of Encanto-inspired activities today! Some of today’s activities could easily be incorporated into lesson plans!

Encanto Inspired Craft / Colombia Inspired Craft

As this film is set in the Colombian mountains, our Encanto-inspired designs are inspired by this beautiful country! Let’s explore the magic of the Encanto together!

Encanto Music and Rhythms

We all know Encanto is about MUSIC!! Isabela is surrounded by music throughout this new Disney movie. No wonder then that Colombia is often described as “the country of a thousand rhythms”! So let’s make some music..

diy maracas
Maracas are a fun Colombian instrument

Learn how to make your own maracas from recycled materials – Maracas are a popular musical instrument in South America, including Colombia. Learn more about maracas here.

paper guitar

Make a simple guitar (that makes noise!) out of cardboard and rubber bands. We left our guitar relatively simple…but if you’re making an Encanto guitar, why not decorate it with brightly colored flowers and animals?


Keep the beat going with these super simple castanets or “click clack” toys! Simple, colorful and fun!

Let’s talk about Encanto animals!

Again, we’re not talking about Bruno, but we CAN talk about animals! Oh and what amazing animals there are – both in the Encanto movie, but of course in Colombia too! Here are some Encanto-inspired animal creations to try!

Do you like the cheeky Pico Toucan in Encanto? Make one of our bird finger puppets and color it in Pico colors!

vulture toilet paper roll

Ok, maybe not too many vultures in the Encanto movie. However, the Andean condor/vulture IS Colombia’s national bird. So if you’re exploring Colombia, besides loving making things from toilet rolls, this toilet roll vulture is a must!

do because of encanto
Because the Spotted Jaguar is also featured in our toilet roll designs!

Do you like Antonio Madrigal and his partner Parce? Well maybe Because the spotted jaguar is your favorite pet. Then we also have a big spotted cat that Red Ted made many moons ago that would be just perfect for you! Check out our toilet roll zoo for inspiration!

mouse finger puppet
Don’t eat the rats!

Well… everyone knows the famous “Don’t eat the rats!” » time at Ecanto! But did you also know that in Colombia, we don’t have the tooth fairy but Ratoncito Perez – Perez the mouse – so why not try these mouse finger puppets. Aren’t they cute?

Make Encanto flowers!

One thing you will definitely notice about the Encanto is the NATURE and all the flowers and wildlife! So if you’re looking for Encanto crafts for kids, bright and colorful flowers of all sizes should definitely be on the list! We have a LOT of gorgeous floral designs to browse through, but we’ve picked out the following for you:

paper flower

These 3d paper flowers are very pleasant to make – they are ideal for decorating large spaces and very easily!

newspaper flowers

These newspaper flowers are economical and fun to make. You can make them as big or small as you want and go wild with the colors.

tissue paper flowers

Tissue paper flowers with buttons are a “classic” from childhood and a must-have. They are pretty and so easy to make and you can easily make a bouquet centerpiece with them.

The Encanto family is everything

family tree for Encanto fans
Familia is everything!

Now, as we know, The Family Madrigal is super special. But in Mirabel, Familie is EVERYTHING! Why not try making your own family tree – She Knows has some great examples of how to make one. But in YOUR family tree, don’t just name people, but also add a characteristic of the person that makes them special. Maybe they are super nice? Or more fun?

Let’s make our own weather


Are you inspired by Tía Pepa and how she can control the weather? Good okay. We can’t REALLY make the weather or influence it. But my friend Emma from Science SParks has a fantastic set of WEATHER experiments, you just have to try! From a storm in a jar to predicting rain. Which one are you going to try!

Cook the Arepas con Queso de Julieta
