Kids Crafts Based on Popular Children's BooksI would have to say that we really love reading books and creating activities and crafts based on the books. We've re-created books through play, busy bags, snacks, sensory play, but one of my favorite ways to explore a great book is through crafts. These are a collection of all of our crafts based on great books. You can see all of our book related activities over here. For now, grab a piece of paper and and a pencil, because you are going to want to check out all of these books from your library!
Now, there are many who proclaim the benefits of process-related creativity in children. I am a big believer that both process and product based arts and crafts are hugely beneficial to children in many similar and different ways. Crafts are a great way to work on developmental skills and are used by Occupational Therapists to develop certain goal areas.
WHY use crafts to work on skill areas in kids? These are just a few ways that crafts can help kids:
Fine motor grasps
Multi-step task organization
Visual perceptual skills
So, use those book related crafts to work on skills that kids need in a fun and developmentally appropriate way, while exploring new books!
