The importance of crafts
Crafting with your kids can be a lot of fun! It’s a creative approach and also tends to keep the kids busy! Enough time for you to be able to sneak off and make a cuppa or have a quick wee on your own. I mention that because I am sure you need it!
All jokes aside, crafting with your kids can do so much for them in so many areas. Did you know that working on crafts can help kids be more mindful and allows them to lower stress and anxiety? This can be achieved by creating a quiet space for your kids to craft whenever they feel anxious. Keeping this space quiet and peaceful can allow your child to proactively seek that quiet time.
Here are a few more benefits:
- improvement of fine motor skills
- hand-eye coordination
- helps with critical thinking
- allows creativity
- helps with language skills
- numeracy is improved if the craft requires counting
- attention span is improved
