Crafts are a great way to encourage creativity, problem solving and to develop cognitive skills all while having fun. You don’t always need to buy expensive kits or specialty items. You will find that most of the crafts listed used items found around the home.
Pencils, crayons, paper, glue and scissors plus a few things found around the home and you’re all set. Find an area to work, keep a wet and a dry towel handy and you’re ready to create with your kids. That’s right, WITH your kids!
Don’t worry if you can’t draw a straight line, nobody can. That’s why we have rulers. Chances are the artwork you and your kids create won’t make it to a museum, not yet anyways, but it will be fun. A great way to share some time together and of course, create some great memories. The crafts listed are very basic and can be made as elaborate as you’d like, so get crafty with the kids.
