Doing kids crafts is a great learning tool. It teaches the child creativity, building, and inadvertently, patience.
It also gives you the ability to spend some quality time together. You can talk about the crafts that you are doing or anything else.
Creating things together helps you build a healthy relationship. It does not require a lot of skill and is fun to do.
Just make sure that you pick crafts for the child's age or they will become frustrated and it turn out to be not such a pleasant event.
Here is a simple craft idea that would be suitable for most ages:
Grab a few brown paper bags and get the child to draw some characters on them. If you wish, you can cut out arms, legs, or even eyes.
After you have created the paper bag characters, you can have a puppet show.
A lot of laughs and fun can come out of this project.
