The Crafty Crow is a children's craft collective. A friend passed along this website to me. It has really cool craft ideas and most of them are eco-friendly. Doing crafts is a great past time for children. Crafts allow children to be creative (depending on the type of craft - some don't always favour process over product, but that's ok sometimes!), practice fine motor skills, practice listening to and following directions, attention to detail, and so on.
Go to The Crafty Crow and let me know what you think.
