How to get crafty with your kids:

Crafting with your kids is a big deal. They will remember the experience into adulthood. Kids who spend time working side by side with their parents often grow up to become more outspoken individuals who work well with others.

On the other hand, kids that work alone tend to have more difficulty opening up to their parents. Hence, parents should make time for their kids to know about their daily activities, their worries, their hopes, dreams, and so on.

Plus, getting crafty with your child can give them a much-needed break from technology and media.

Before anything, take time to connect with your kid to see what they are into. If they have a favorite video game, maybe you guys can use colored pencils to draw the characters. If they like camping, you can create a little campy retreat in the back yard. 

Once you are both on the same page – it is time to put those creative skills to use!

Make sure to think about these things:

— Is the environment friendly for a child? In other words; are there any distractions such as TV noise, or other children playing around?

— Do you have all the right tools you need? If so, does your child know how to use them?

— Does your child enjoy the craft? Chances are if your child doesn’t enjoy the craft, you won’t get their best participation, which means they will eventually lose interest in partaking in other crafting projects.
