I have nieces and nephews who are just the cutest. I love hanging out with them and doing different crafts with them. It gives them a chance to use their imagination and be creative. Sometimes it’s hard though to keep my patience with them, in a general setting and while doing crafts. I know a lot of parents who like to craft with their kids, but get frustrated easily. The key is to NOT. I found this great article that gives 10 great tips on how to avoid certain things while starting a craft. Some of the tips include beginning a project that’s too difficult, trying to control everything and worrying too much about neatness. I for one am a neat freak so when the kids don’t do something perfect it irritates me. When you’re doing crafts though, these are some of the things you need to avoid. This smiley face beaded bracelet has a lot of materials and steps. If this is something you’re going to work with your kids on make sure you follow the tips listed in the article. Some other fun, but semi difficult crafts for kids to do might be a photo holder or fuzzy critter crafts.
