Looking for new ways to add some creativity to your child's life? Consider incorporating craft ideas for kids into your weekly routine. Help your little ones use their imaginations and create some artsy goodness. Crafting can take children away from the ever-present screens, but what parents might not realize are all the other benefits that come with crafting.

"I think the most important benefit is helping your child build their creative intuition," says Doña Bumgarner, a writer, artist, mama and creator of Nurtured Mama. "Even if they don't become an artist in any formal way, having experience with creative pursuits will give them a way of thinking and problem-solving that will help them stand out and succeed in any field."

You can also strengthen your relationship with your child thanks to crafting. "Lots of bonding [happens]," says Angie Ramirez, the blogger behind Little Inspiration. "I love when my girl helps and love hearing her say she loves crafting with me."
