Crafting can be fun for kids of any age group. kids are very creative and most of them would like to mess around with their craft material. And this freedom to create what ever they want is fun for kids. More than that there are a lot of benefits of crafting like building fine motor skills, dexterity, concentration, develops their creativity, problem solving,  builds eye-hand co-ordination, idea generation, etc

On the whole they get to know about the world around them, they learn about everything ,colors, size, and smell of the material they are using without even knowing that they are learning. Most children learn quickly by sensing or feeling than by learning from text books. All subjects can be better understood while crafting, even maths can be learned well by crafting.

Art and craft can be used indirectly  to teach your kids colors, shapes, patterns, alphabet, numbers. By crafting you can reinforce learning and build on the skills that they learn at school. So make learning easier for them from these hidden benefits….Never bother about the mess they create, just have fun with your kids…


Fore instance if you have a hard time teaching colors to your kids, crafting is a better idea to teach them. He wont even know he is learning. If you are teaching color to toddlers you can make use of their toys to teach colors. For preschoolers or school going kids you can allow them to draw and paint to get them familiar with colors. Or ask them to wear a particular color on each day of the week and you can put them into groups to craft something that are yellow.
