Highlights is committed to nurturing children’s growing minds by helping them problem-solve, use their imaginations and see things in new ways. The creative play of crafting is a fun way to boost all of these skills — in all aspects of life! Craft projects are a great way to promote independent play, to encourage hands-on fun during playdates and to provide boredom-busting indoor fun.
Something for Everyone
With so many kinds of things to make, any kid will be sure to find a craft they can’t wait to try.
And we make it easy for parents to get the ball rolling, with books organized by items they may already have around the house. Crafts are great for spending quality time together, too
