Arts and crafts are so empowering for kids to grow their imagination and creativity. This international movement started as interior design and fine arts. The trend developed in the British Isles. Next it traveled all across the British Empire, Europe, and America. There are so many benefits to engaging in arts and crafts! Additionally we have printables to guide you.
Benefits of this genre includes self esteem, skill building, and family time. Self awareness, imagination, growth. You can use colors, crayons, paper, and tape. Also glitter, cardboard, pipe cleaners, water colors, and paper plates. Here at Anyreasonlife lifestyle blog we have paper plate clocks, coffee filter flowers, and DIY paint. As well as Playdough and card board playhouses!
I adore spending time with my toddler daughter on less messy crafts such as coloring paper plates, drawings, or butterflies. She is good at cutting with child safe scissors and using elmers glue. She has fun doing anything as long as she’s spending time with mom, dad, and brother. Her older brother is a preteen so his interests are more complicated. You gets bored easier but likes to get into things and complete objectives. I enjoy anything that keeps them from butting heads but rather doing arts and crafts together. For example colorful string is a non messy craft item that transcends age groups. For example my son can actually put in the time to make a pom pom while my 3 year old is happy to just tease the cat! It is a win win for mom and dad. Furthermore I don’t have a huge mess that requires a bucket and a mop afterwards.
These family fun activities will have the kids hopping for joy and learning at the same time.
You only need 2 simple ingredients to make the homemade playdough recipe, and three ingredients to make it blue.
