The Benefits of Crafting

Your kids can get so much out of making crafts with you.  They can have a great time with you.  They can have tons of fun making crafts.  Their fine motor skills can be improved. 

All those things are wonderful but one of the best things about making crafts (Besides spending time together) is the creativity you’re helping to nurture.

It’s not just being able to glue eyes onto a bear craft.  Creativity is behind people who can think outside the box, and who can find a different, maybe even better way, to solve a problem.

Creativity is not just for the arts, it’s a useful, everyday skill.
