Kids have an endless and overflowing amount of energy. It shows in their imaginative play and their innate ability to make something out of nothing. For kids, art is an amazing outlet to channel that boundless energy into something creative. Crafts allow kids to explore, imagine and create something all their own that they can be proud of. It fosters creativity, confidence, focus and problem solving. The benefits are endless!
