Three year olds are at a very fun stage. In this development stage they want to absorb everything around them. They love textures and getting their hands on things to see how they work. This is a great time to introduce crafts for a 3 year old. Crafts encourage them to be creative and use their imagination. A child that gets to use glue, paint, popsicle sticks, crayons, and other craft items improves both their fine motor skills and expands their development. Crafts are also a great way for a child to express him or herself.
