As a Canadian, American holidays always creep up on me, I'm still learning, but also as a Canadian we're often too nice, passive and say sorry way too much - at least that's the stereotype. Well, it's [...]

8 Life Skills That Kids Get from Doing Crafts

What to Make|

We love how 5 Recipes for Life explained why crafts are so important for kids... Art paper and crayons may seem “boring” and “outdated” to a child who’s used to flashy video games and battery-operated toys. However, many experts urge parents to get kids to do at least one hour of arts and crafts a week. Your child may balk a bit (“But mom, my favorite cartoon is showing!”) but he’ll eventually enjoy it…and will [...]
