We are never too young or too old to learn new skills and to bring crafting into our lives. Crafting can enrich your life in so many ways—from encouraging mindfulness and relaxation to improving patience and the ability to problem-solve, to building self-expression and self-esteem. We all thrive when we tap into our natural state of creativity and starting on this path at a young age will define the map of living a creative life.
We will complete four projects that will cover crafting techniques using felt, embroidery floss, crepe paper, and sewing needles. There are enough materials in your kit to finish all four projects plus extra paper and felt for more creative exploration!
