Don’t you just love doing crafts with your kids?  For me, this is especially true during the holidays. There are just so many crafts out there to do!  Plus, to make it even better, there are lots of benefits of doing holiday crafts with your kids. 

Arts and crafts are the hub of the kid spaces in many homes, and that is for good reason! The benefits that kids develop as a result of having arts and crafts time both alone and with their parents are immeasurable, but there are some very obvious benefits that we felt like talking about today.

7 Benefits of Doing Holiday Crafts with Your Kids

1. It’s fun

I mean, really, do you really need any more reason that the fact that it is fun?  It’s so good for kids to have fun, and it’s especially good for them to have fun while doing arts and crafts and other educational activities.

2. The Bonding Time

The time that you spend doing holiday crafts with your kids is incredibly important for bonding in your relationship with them.  Your children will look back on these craft times with you fondly. It a great way to build memories with them.

3. The Boosted Confidence

Creating something, reaching goals and learning how to do new skills are all confidence boosting activities.  All of this takes place when you do holiday crafts with your kids. I am a big believer in doing everything we can do build our kids’ self-esteem, and this is a great way to do it.

4. The Inspiration

When a child creates one masterpiece (make no mistake, they are all masterpieces), they will be so excited that it will inspire them to create another and another.  Creativity inspires more creativity. It really is a wonderful thing.

5. The Improved Coordination

Arts and crafts are great for improving coordination in small children.  This means bilateral coordination (they are having to use both hands together), hand-eye coordination and more.  All of this improved coordination is good for other parts of their lives as well.

6. The Improved Patience

Often with holiday crafts, there is more than just doing a craft.  Many times it means waiting until paint and/or glue dries or clay sets, etc. Once this waiting period is over, then you can really see the end result and show it off too. This is a great lesson in patience for kids of all ages.  

7. The Lifetime of Scrapbook Contributions

You may be battling the never ending piles of craft supplies now, but soon enough, your children will be grown and not wanting to do crafts with you anymore.  That said, you will always have these crafts and art pieces to keep in a keepsake box or scrapbook, or even hanging on the wall. You will love knowing as your children get older that you can look back through them anytime you want.
