MAKE A CRAFT {31 DAYS: DAY 22}

October 23, 2011 | Filed in: 31 Days | by Amanda

{alternate title: Look! It’s Day 22 and I’m just now mentioning a craft!}

I like doing crafts with my kids. I love scrolling through Pinterest and my favorite blogs for new craft ideas for the kids. When I was a little girl, I wanted to do every single thing in my Childcraft Make and Do book. I can’t sew or knit, but I still love being creative with paper and glue!

What makes crafts so good for teaching kids about the Bible is that you are engaging another of the five senses. You’ve probably heard statistics and research on how kids learn by doing and feeling and experiencing instead of just listening and filling in the blanks. It’s why kindergarten classrooms have interactive stations for kids instead of 8 hours of worksheets at a desk. It’s why Montessori type schools are so popular. Kids learn when they DO.

If kids can hear, see, taste, smell and touch they are more apt to remember and to internalize what they are learning.
