Arts and Crafts Can Be Fun

Arts and crafts bring out the dormant creativity in children. You may have noticed that children who indulge in creating artful materials from a tender age are the ones who become noticed in school or friends circle. The joy in bringing out a new work or art can only be experienced. No words can describe it. The confidence levels of creative children also soar.

There is a wide variety of crafts and arts that a child can indulge, according to his ability and age. The inexpensive and otherwise useless articles lying in the garage or the attic can be put to use in these creative endeavors. The older members in the family and teachers should guide the child about safe and clean handling of the materials, but discouraging words or actions need to be cut out at all costs.

Different kinds of arts and craft exist. Balloon crafts, paper crafts, art works from straw or waste boxes, pebble, rock, twig, macaroni, egg shells and cartons, toilet paper, plaster of Paris, pine cones-anything can be put to use to create ingenious products or art.

The results can be phenomenal. I have seen children producing an entire farm house with all its animals, barns, fields and people with these materials. Even useful articles like bulletin boards, greeting cards, masks, puppets, buildings can be brought out with a little application of imagination. The more technically inclined produce spring toys and pop up toys using simple and drab things.

But for most, it is the effort, more than the result, which is more endearing. Grown ups should consider art projects as a learning process, not as a commercial activity. The little money and time involved may prove to be of incomparable help to your child.
