- Keep age in mind and improvise.
- Invest some time in teaching them basic things like threading a needle, tying a knot, doing a blanket/back stitch, sewing on a button, tracing simple shapes or patterns onto fabrics and cutting them out. This will save you in the long run having to put down your project to assist them.
- Make crafting supplies available for kids to use whenever they get a crafty urge! We have a craft cupboard in our home - with clear boundaries set. Where they can craft, preparation (floor & table mats & smocks) and CLEANING UP all has rules set.
- I really try not to their make crafting time only for when it suits me & my timetable. I will admit this is a whole lot easier when the kids are older.
