2). Allot an appropriate amount of time and an uncluttered space to make your creations.
3). Read through the directions first with your child so that they know where the project is heading. Remind them of the health and safety rules. Emphasize the need for patience and following the steps.
4). Get started. Depending on the age, and dexterity of the child you might find yourself helping out more than you thought. It’s okay to offer assistance but remember to try to allow them as much free rein to create as possible. The goal is that it is not perfect but authentically your child’s project.
5). Take it a step further and make up your own craft or design from an existing craft then write out the steps with your child. These directions can be attached to the craft if gifted. What grandparent wouldn’t be thrilled to not only receive this handmade item but also the directions prepared and possibly illustrated by their grandchild?
