March is National Craft Month!

Whether it be in the classroom or at home, crafting provides a great opportunity to spend time with loved ones, while getting the creative juices flowing and challenging children to be resourceful all while letting their imaginations run!  From making their favorite cartoon characters out of household items, to creating something entirely new and unique, crafting provides a unique snapshot into the development of your child, and is also an opportunity for self-expression. The benefits of crafting include: bonding time, reducing stress, improving motor skills, and fostering creativity and expression.
