Boosting their creativity while improving their hand-eye coordination skills, crafts for kids appeal to children of all ages, you just need to discover which craft appeals to your child the most.
While the younger ones will happily spend hours colouring-in and painting, you need something more challenging to keep the older kids occupied such as ‘build your own kits’ by the likes of Kidsonroof, noted* and Bioviva.
