I have always been creatively inclined but my passion for arts and crafts activities started when my three children were born. They are now 12, 10 and 6 and I have enjoyed craft time with all of them starting from when they were toddlers. Over the last 5 years I have enjoyed designing and sharing crafts and learning activities on my blog, I Heart Crafty Things, to help inspire parents to get creative with their children.
I am not a certified teacher but I love to share fun, simple and engaging arts and crafts activities for children. I am a believer that children benefit greatly by participating in arts and crafts time at an early age. Not only does it help them to use their mind creatively and express themselves creatively, but they are able to learn and become proficient in much needed skills for Elementary school like how to cut, glue, hold a pencil correctly, beginning sewing skills, how to paint and how to work with a variety of different art mediums. My crafts are designed to help teach these skills.
