Tips for crafting with kids.
- Gather some basic tools and materials. Scissors, there are ceramic scissors that are sharp but safe for kids. Quality tools ensure satisfaction not frustration. With all the great portable storage container selections you can put together a compact crafty station. Add glue, felt, buttons, twine, wiggly eyes, ribbon scraps, pom poms and chenille stems. Paper, pencils and markers are a few other handy items to add along with hand wipes. Recyclable containers like gift wrap rolls, plastic bottles provide a basic platform.
- Crafting with the kids, be inspired by nature. Lay down in the backyard, just watch the clouds, look for shapes and animals. Draw or paint together right there.
- There are great kits, often very inexpensive and the pieces are precut, embellishing and gluing is the best part anyway! TIP: Keep an old plastic tablecloth to protect whatever surface you are using. Exploring creativity especially with young ones is messy.
- Just ask questions, be encouraging, celebrate the purple trees and frogs with eight eyes. The creative vision is inspired by the real world but is not reflected by their frog having to be exactly a green frog with two eyes. Showcase the masterpieces, build confidence and pride in their creations!
