Why is Easter Carrot Prints a good craft for your preschooler?
- It is great activity for motor skills
Finding fun ways to incorporate motor skill learning is always a bonus with preschoolers.
- Wonderful memory keeper
Having memories to keep from your preschooler from craft time is special. I so enjoy my children’s box of crafts they have made for me through the years. Everytime I look in the box, it’s taking a trip down memory lane.
- It’s family time together
Finding little moments to steal away while working on crafts and activities will be memories to cherish. I will never have those moments again, but I have the memories to hold.
- Children need to have time to be messy and creative
We all have times when we need to express ourselves. Children need the same time to be creative and to help find what they enjoy doing.
