Get Started Crafting While You’re Young
Kids like to craft too. Maybe it’s the fun of getting themselves covered with paint or glue. But some of these budding artists might continue on and become professional crafters some day.
My philosophy has always been that crafts are not really age specific. If you have the patience and manual dexterity to do something, age is of little difference. Of course, hazardous materials should be kept away from children too young to use them properly.
However there are some crafts that appeal to younger crafters more than others. Here are some of my thoughts. If you don’t find what you are looking for here, use the search box or click on the “Contact” link to the left to send us your questions.
