Crafts are great indoor activities for kids!
Families around the world who live in poverty help their kids create their own toys and crafts. As you create these crafts and do these activities, discuss how children play around the world. Share with your kids that children use everyday household trash to create toys, balls, and craft supplies.
If the craft is from a specific country, have your children locate it on a map and encourage them to research the area. What are the neighboring countries, bodies of water, languages spoken, and religions? What is the main source of income? Do kids sell crafts to help pay for food and supplies?
Indoor activities for kids can turn into a learning opportunity!
Adult help needed.
Families who live in poverty often can’t afford toys, so kids make their own. You can do the same by recycling cans and pretending you’re one of the baby elephants at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust!
