Crafts for kids don’t have to be expensive!
Children around the world make crafts from things they pick up around the streets, including trash! Then they sell these crafts to help support their families. Sometimes the money they earn for crafts is the only income the family receives that day. So, the money is spent on food and supplies.
Crafts for kids can be educational too!
The crafts that we’ve designed are more than just fun! They are educational too. Take time to discuss the purpose of crafts around the world. They are instrumental in many families having food on the table at the end of the day. Take time to discuss poverty around the world.
Encourage kids to imagine what the world is like and what life would be like if they were living in poverty. What craft would they make in order to buy food for their family?
Crafts for kids can develop creativity!
Crafts are one of the greatest ways to develop creativity in children. Encourage them to use their imaginations when drawing, coloring, and creating.
