Crafty creations can cause a lot of mess and muddle, but there is no denying that making stuff and experimenting with materials are a favourite pastime with many of our little ones. In addition to the obvious pleasure it brings, cutting, pasting, building and tearing things up can help with the development of fine motor skills.
We love encouraging a little mess and muddle with a selection of crafty projects each month. This month we have a selection of projects for the boys, but of course they are just as much fun for the girls as well. Gak, goop, sliding, digging, building and flying are all part of the fun.
