If there’s one activity I love to do most with my kids, it’s crafting. When I was a kid, we had a set of craft books that would break down all the materials you needed and give step-by-step instructions to complete them. I would find a craft I wanted to do, check if we had all the materials needed, and sit until the project was finished. I love being able to show my kids different ways to express their creativity. As I grew older, I took art classes to learn things like composition and color theory. Although I don’t always get that technical when doing crafts with my kids, I like to be able to incorporate an applicable lesson when it fits.
Here is an index of the crafts and craft ideas I’ve posted on my site. Enjoy!
