These days are unprecedented and actually quite crazy. Many find these times to be unsettling, filled with anxiety and even downright scary.  When it comes to kids (of all ages), research show that being creative supports emotional growth and healing.  Through the act of making things, kids get to be inventive.  Ideas, trials and tribulations get worked out in the creative process.  This can help with learning how to manage frustration.  When crafting together with kids, they often open up verbally and share more than they might in a straight on conversation.

We are in LOVE with the way that Beth from Creatively Bethdid her interactive kit through text messaging with her Goddaughter.  Her Quiz Art came out beautiful.  

 Laura from Me and My INKlings whipped up a bright and cheery decoration to add some joy inside the home.  Right now, every little bit of extra color and happy makes a big difference.  The Unicorn String Art kit is perfect for this.

Lindsay from Artsy Fartsy Mama worked together with her daughter to create crazy adorable Surprise Balls.

And finally Meg from Makeable Crafts went all out and designed this amazing work of art with her teenage daughter.  The Inspire Poster Kit is a fabulous way to connect with teenagers.
