Why crafts are a great for kids
Kids love to be creative and celebrate holidays. Valentine crafts for kids and others are a great way for them to limit screen time and have fun. Not every kid will love every craft, and that’s okay. A great way to get your kids excited about craft projects is to show them this list and let them pick which one (or two or three) they would like to create. Then assemble the supplies together or head to the store to grab what you need.
Give your child the reigns in the project. Let them customize it to their own preferences and be sure to have fun. This is a creative outlet to get different parts of the brain working and for you to have some fun together.
