Why pair crafts with books?

It Creates a

Positive Association

Unfortunately, once kids hit school age, reading becomes less of a fun activity and more of an assigned chore. Working on a craft related to a book read together helps break that association and link reading with oxytocin, the "feel-good" hormone.

It Can Increase

Reading Comprehension

Tying an activity into the book you just read presents a unique opportunity to really delve into the information that was just introduced, which can strengthen reading comprehension!

Crafts are Good for

Growing Brains!

Crafting stimulates brain areas related to motor skills, the senses and creativity... all areas that we'd love to encourage cognitive growth, especially in the pivotal first five years of life! Crafting can also help decrease stress and enhance patience in children that participate in it regularly.
