Little ones (aka Littles) love to craft. My granddaughters and I always have several craft sessions while we are together. And, it's usually their idea.
There are so many benefits to crafting for youngsters. Here are just a few off the top of my head...
- It requires the use of their imagination.
- It's a great alternative to screen time.
- It contributes to the development of an appreciation for the arts.
- It helps to develop a sense of accomplishment.
While "our" crating sessions usually involve paper crafts, their possibilities are endless with just a box of crayons, colored pencils, or watercolors and household items.
And, below are a few photos of our two oldest granddaughters with their creations!
Mia loves to glue die-cut and punched shapes and apply self-adhesive embellishments to create collages on card stock or card fronts.
Mia loves to use scissors, too. :) See her little fringe cuts on her design above?
