I have had a love of crafts my entire life. Creativity is a passion and an outlet for me. I can’t imagine life without a creative outlet and I have been blessed to have two little boys who have taken on my love of crafts and who have begun to develop their own creative passions.
Crafting is an important part of a child’s healthy development. By encouraging your kid’s creativity you are helping to build a wide range of life skills including; social development, fine motor and visual spatial development, skills in planning and completion of tasks, concentration, imagination, as well as a feeling of success and self worth!
I started Freckles Crafts to assist other parents who would love to do crafts with their kids but lack the creative ability to come up with project ideas or do not always have the necessary supplies on hand. So many times I have heard parents say, “I would love to do crafts with my kids but I am just not creative”, or “I just don’t ever have the right supplies to do crafts”. Freckles Craft kits take all the guess work out of doing crafts with your kids. Everything you need is in the kit. All you have to do open the kit and let the fun begin!
In an age of mindless TV watching and video game playing it is important as parents that we assist our children in learning new skills and exercising their creativity. Spending time with your kids doing crafts will build valuable memories for both you and your child. Who knows you might even rekindle you own creative spirit! Happy Crafting,
