If you’ve got a young one with small hands, try using a q-tip as a miniature paint brush. Big paint brushes can mean big messes with small children. A q-tip on the other hand is the perfect size for them. Plus the cotton end acts almost like a pencil to draw with. This is a really cheap but functional solution!
Look for deals on arts and crafts supplies. Many stores offer sales from time to time and you should check the ad or the store’s website. When you do a lot of arts and crafts projects, it can add up. Instead of spending a lot of money, look for deals.
Stay focused on one element at a time. In this hobby, new projects are always tempting to start. This will prevent projects from getting done. Focus, and tell yourself to finish your first project before doing any others. This gives you the best chances of finishing.
Find ways to share your crafting skill with others. Teaching your children how to join you in doing a craft is a great way to pass down your special skill. It is also a great way to spend time with your family and to make memories that will last a lifetime.
