National Children’s Craft Day is observed annually on March 14th. This day is an attempt to bring awareness of crafting to children. By opening children’s eyes to the world of crafts, their imagination is sparked, and from there, the possibilities are endless. National Children’s Craft Day is part of National Craft Month.
Crafting can give children a sense of accomplishment as well as help build their self-esteem. As with adults, in children crafting is also a stress reducer.
Craft stores hold special classes throughout the month of March, so there are opportunities for children to get involved. It’s also an opportunity for children to interact with others, to learn something new and to have fun without electronics or television. When stimulating a child’s creativity, we encourage their curiosity and use of tactile skills as well.
It doesn’t cost a lot to get a child involved with crafts. Many common household items can be used for projects.
