You will never regret the time you spend crafting with your kids. It’s so fun to craft memories together. Let’s be honest…we all say that we want less screen time, more time doing meaningful things together, less time spent in the chaos of life…but when it comes down to it, life passes us by. Time just moves by so quickly, and we miss those moments. To make it truly happen takes a plan.

And I know that you are aware of all of the benefits of making crafts with your kids. The obvious is that it’s great for improving fine motor skills, problem solving, motor planning, and using scissors. But there is so much more.

Time crafting together allows children to open up and share from their hearts, both in words and through their creations. It promotes social skills ans sharing. And, of course, it gives kids the opportunity to practice verbal skills. If nothing else, it’s a chance to break away from the habit of sitting in front of screens, which is nearly impossible in this day and age.

This free printable craft-a-week-calendar is the blueprint you need to craft memories together all year long. It goes hand in hand with our master list of craft supplies, just 27 basic items that fit into one bag. Use our list to fill your bag, and you’re ready to make each craft without a special trip to the store.

You can even print it out and mark them off as they’re completed. Am I the only one who loves crossing things off of lists?

The crafts chosen are great for any age. Though little ones will likely need assistance with things like cutting out complex shapes. But they will love the coloring, painting, assembly, lacing and more. The important part is that every child has a chance to express their individual creativity.
