There is something very satisfying about making things with one's hands. That something is somewhat lacking today in the westernized world. But makings things remains as it always was a good way to learn practical skills, develop creativity and raise self-esteem both for children and adults. The internet is a virtual (pun intended) crafter's paradise with lots of exciting and unique projects and ideas of what to do and make with and for kids on many different skill and interest levels. One probably needs at least a few lifetimes to try out all the various projects that are available. I hope to post some particularly intriguing possibilities in the near future . But meanwhile here are a few of my favorite links for craft sites. Enjoy!!!
