Crafting With Kids

When was the last time you spent some quality one-on-one time with your child? Crafting with kids is a perfect way to do just that. So dig out the old craft supply box and work on a fun little project together.

Crafting with kids is a great way to spend quality time together. These days kids are so consumed with technology that they often don’t even know what making crafts means.

Make a connection – If you feel like you aren’t all that connected with your child, try crafting with her. Find a fun craft that you will both enjoy making and block out some special time with her. Crafting together is an easy way to spend alone time with one of your kids and find out what’s going on in their minds.

Give emotional support – As you craft together, your child will probably be more willing to open up and talk to you about things that are on her mind. If your child starts to talk about what’s bothering her, listen and offer emotional support. Offer your advice and let her know that you are always there for her.

Keep it fun – Crafting with your kids should always be a fun and enjoyable activity for everyone involved. Try not to obsess about how perfect she’s painting or getting the bead glued on just right. Keep your craft time relaxed. It’s about the time you spend together, not about how perfect the finished product is.

Encourage and stay interested – Many adults suffer from low self-esteem as a direct result of their parents’ negative attitude towards them during childhood. As you craft with your kids, be interested in what they’re doing. Kids love to share their artwork. Be encouraging and pay positive comments to your kid about their craft. Show them that you are interested in them.
