Arts and Crafts for Children

Arts and crafts for children is an important activity  that does more than allow children to use their imagination and express creativity. Arts and craft activities help develop hand eye coordination, fine and gross motor skills, planning skills and problem solving. These activities will also help build your child's self esteem. Display your child's artwork and crafts in a prominent place in your home or workplace. Homemade picture frames, candy dishes and other items make great gifts ideas for grandparents, aunts and uncles. You can purchase Crafts & Activities child craft kits for just about everything from simple art projects to Doll Making Kits and robot kits.

Play dough, clay paints, markers, crayons, stencils, pencils and paper are great to have on hand for quick and easy crafts. Store them in one or two plastic boxes. Other useful items are feathers, pompoms, craft foam shapes and buttons.  Be sure to add rulers, scissors, glue sticks, and a collection of stickers for more activities.

A nice yearly tradition is to take your child's school picture or other yearly photo and place it in a frame that they have decorated that year. A wonderful keepsake item that will not only display their photo but showcase their creativity, imagination, artistic expression and development.
