Free Children's Craft Instructions

Children's crafts are fun and usually quick to do so that children do not lose their concentration. The kid's crafts that I have here for you take about 1 to 2 hours to do, depending on the skill level of your child and they are made from scraps found around your home or at the bottom of your craft cupboard. Some crafts require time to dry. All of these crafts were done by the children, ages 4 to 13, where I work in less than one hour with some help from parents and staff.
