Whether you're planning to ease out of quarantine this summer or not, there will come the inevitable moment in every parents' life of trying to find new ways to keep kids entertained. It can be a challenge to stay on top of keeping playtime fresh, fun, and educational when you're being pulled in multiple directions, and that's where activity boxes for kids come in to save the day.
Not only can they take the guesswork out of playtime, but many like our Craft Club subscription boxes are curated to nurture creative learning and development in little ones.
Benefits Of A Craft Subscription For Kids
Playtime should be the prime time for littles to explore their imagination and create without limits. Limitless creativity is the catalyst for kids to discover things that build the confidence and independence that support their development as tiny humans. The list goes on and on, but here are our core benefits of why creative learning and development is so important:
- Emotional Development: Creativity allows littles to express and understand the many emotions that they experience. Imaginative play or "make-believe" is a great way to see emotional development play out in real-time.
- Social Development: Interacting with siblings, friends, or classmates has a lasting impact on a child's ability to navigate social settings. It will help give them better tools to communicate, process the actions of others, and establish their individuality.
- Physical Development: Sensory, motor skills, hand-eye coordination are just a few of the physical skills nurtured by creativity.
- Intellectual Development: Creative play opens up the world around kids. They can start to connect the dots between words and objects, feelings and images, or even problems and solutions.
A Peek Inside Our Subscription Boxes For Kids
Craft Club was born from our belief that creating shouldn't have limits, making a partnership with process art (going with the flow of creating) enthusiast Meri Cherry a no-brainer. Through our collaboration, she curates open-ended arts and crafts activities that celebrate and challenge every kid's imagination. Each box is designed to fit the developmental needs of kiddos as young as six and beyond.
So, what's inside? Tips, tricks, and of course, tons of high-quality arts and crafts supplies for each activity. Oh, and you'd want to hold onto the boxes, they make for great storage to keep up with all of the goodies inside, and if your little is feeling extra creative, they can always color it in!
Here's a sneak peek into what kids can look forward to every month with Craft Club.
