Craft Time with the Kids

We recently asked our Facebook fans what got them started on craft. A number responded that it was their mother that got them interested in this hobby. For me too, it was my mother. She introduced me to my first cross-stitching kit, my first knitting set and pretty soon I was hooked. Now I have two little children of my own and I find a great way to spend quality time with the kids is through craft. Not only do they learn to work with their hands and keep themselves occupied in something constructive, they also end up with a toy they can play with. 

So this post is all about craft projects for kids. We at ItsyBitsy want to encourage crafting moms everywhere to get their kids started on craft and to offer some inspiration, we came up with this giraffe project. Just a few craft supplies from our store, items which you probably already have at home, can produce a fairly elaborate and intricate outcome.

Here's a glance at the materials we used.

Craft projects for kids are the easiest and most fun to do. You will probably also find that kids are more appreciative too than other recipients. Have you worked with your kids on anything recently? We'd love to know. Leave a comment and tell us.
