Howdy Everyone! March is National Craft Month so I thought I would share some of my favorites sites for kid's crafts. Incorporating crafts into lessons is a fun way to learn and many times can give additional meaning and understanding to a concept/subject. I've taught a combination of art and crafts (reading and writing too) for 20+ years and the Internet has been my main source of project inspiration for many moons now.
So whether you're looking for a craft project for a holiday, or to incorporate into a lesson, I recommend checking out a few of my favorites.
