As a child, I remember taking part in arts and crafts both at home and in school. I learnt how to sow buttons unto material, make scarf through knitting and make beads, and bangles through recycled materials. These skills stayed with me and I have never forgotten them.
Craft has been useful to me as a parent in situations when a bottom or two on my children’s clothing had needed repair.
Arts and crafts are very good skills for children. It helps them develop a life skill that is practical and creative. It helps by boosting kids self-esteem in seeing what they have created or made come alive and into form. Not all children are academic due to having more creative and artistic skills. It is the parent or careers responsibility to encourage these skills in the child ensuring he/she fell valued as a creative person. Arts and crafts can also contribute positively in enhancing parent-child relationship. Parents coming together with their children in making creative items and objects enhances relationship and memories that can not be forgotten.
