Arts and crafts are a big part of unschooling our children. We try to do a creative project daily for our daughter who loves to draw, paint, glue and be crafty. Sometimes our son joins in, but he frequently find more active things to engage in while she doodles or paints.
We have found that stimulating her desire for creativity has brought her confidence and joy. She loves showing off her work and giving gifts that she has made to others.
The frequent craft projects have not only stimulated her creativity, but her mind. She has learned about texture, color, temperature, time, numbers, and more. The crafts have helped her to develop her fine motor skills amd progress her ability to communicate.
