My kids love crafts just like their mom. They have unstructured kids crafts time where they cut, color, paint, and glue. We also have fun with structured craft activities, many of which I share here on my site.
Not every craft will have a purpose, but I do love seasonal activities because they can be rotated out with the changing of the seasons. We make homemade gifts, diy ornaments, beach crafts, and so much more!
Kids gain a sense of accomplishment after they’ve completed a project. Sometimes it can be hard to cut or glue certain pieces. There are many times when a project doesn’t turn out as they’d hoped. This teaches them to try again, and that art is as much about the creative process as the completed project.
