Inspiring of interest: Craft projects can help children develop an interest in diverse topics and promote their inquisitive nature. Crafts can also make children explore the world around them and develop newer understandings and perspectives.
Time for bonding: When parents engage in arts and crafts activities with children, it allows them to spend quality time together, which is the need of the hour. Not only do you get to spend time with your children, as parents you can use this opportunity to bond and discover more about each other.
Satisfaction as a reward: Making something completely from scratch can be very rewarding. When your child completes a craft project that he has been working hard on, he will enjoy a sense of accomplishment and pride. Needless to say, any recognition or praises offered for his efforts will also boost his self-esteem.
– Developing a life-long interest: Children who enjoy their chosen craft form may end up taking it on as a life-long hobby or better still, develop a career path in that field.
Spending an hour or more everyday at creating something is essential for a healthy mind. Keep experimenting with your children until you find a creative art they love, and then build on from there.
