Learning Crafts For Kids & Adults

craftsbutton

This week the edition of the Virtual Curriculum Fair is on adding beauty to our homeschooling.  For our family one way we do this is having fun with handicrafts!  Our children love to make useful things for the home.  It helps to give them a real sense of purpose in their work.

If you would like to learn how to crochet I’ve made a few beginner video tutorials.
