My son Brandon—who is now 6(!)—has realized the value of art. Meaning that you can make cool stuff with with a little artistic ability and creativity!
Last fall, he couldn't have cared less about crafts. But more recently, it's like he can't get enough! Here's our latest project:
Paper bag puppets! We had a blast creating them and then making up puppet shows! With art/crafts you can make glasses, cell phones, appliances, and much much more. Ah, the satisfaction of making it yourself. What could be better? :)
