If you have school age kids by now you have probably heard the acronym STEM, which stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. More and more schools are focusing on STEM based teaching, even Girl Scouts is starting to as well. However parents, teachers and policy makers are realizing it actually takes STEAM to make the world a better place. The A in STEAM of course stands for Arts. Fibre-Craft’s Creative Hands® Kits are perfect for unleashing the creative side in children. Instructions are minimal, allowing the kiddos mind to create wonderful artistic  and fun projects. I feel that people can teach Science, Technology, Engineering and Math to their hearts content, but without the Arts, everything is boring and run of the mill. We need to encourage uniqueness and creativity to bring some color into the world.

My 6 year old daughter Katie, loves arts and crafts. These kits were perfect for her! She needed a little help with scissors, but other then that she was good to go! Katie decided that she wanted to make a flower from the Paper Pals Kit. The directions were fairly simple, with many ways to use your creative side to decorate and do your own thing. The kits came with everything she needed except glue and scissors, which I’m sure most households have on hand. Katie had a blast designing and decorating her own flower!
