Let's discover the world we live in and beyond. Katie and Jennie create a 3-D pop-up map of the planets together, and Franz explores the artistic use of dimension and space. Gather leaves, sticks and stones and then Jenny shows how to create a nature journal. She and Katie use water and paint to create a new fish species in silhouette. Katie blasts off with a jet pack made from recycled bottles and supplies from the Family Craft Box.
Creativity through crafts is a wonderful way to express yourself and build self-esteem. Children can be successful through craft projects designed just for them and learn that there is no right or wrong way to be creative. Learning can take place through well-designed, curriculum-based creative projects like those presented in Hands On: Crafts for Kids. Their educational review board has established a theme for each television program, themes which are supported throughout our materials. While exploring their creativity, kids also explore recycling, weather, folklore and many other topics.All kids are creative. The Hands On: Crafts for Kids Project recognizes and celebrates the creativity of kids in all aspects of life. A portion of Hands On profits have been used to establish this Project which seeks ways to provide the opportunity for all kids to be exposed to creativity. One of the foundation's initial projects was to donate craft supplies to children at homeless shelters.
