Crafts help kids show their creative side. Doing crafts with your kids can help develop their coordination, improve visual processing abilities, hone fine motor skills in the smallest kids, and allow children of all ages to express themselves. You might be surprised to learn something new about your little ones when they make a card for a friend at school you hadn’t heard of, or paint a picture of something you didn’t know they loved. Crafting is also a flexible activity that can be started and stopped whenever your child wants. Crafts are not weather dependent, so your child can make their own creations whenever they like. Craft activities can also have a calming influence on even the most energetic of kids.
