It’s amazing how much joy and entertainment a few simple items can bring to children when put together in a certain way. Arts and crafts can have many benefits including helping kids make sense of the world and actually helping you parent better. Not to mention, when kids are older it won’t the creation they built that they will remember, but rather the fun time they spent bonding with their parent(s).
