Though her son, wasn't so sure what to expect, this is one happy mom! We met her at the Back 2 School, Back 2 Health event in Orlando a few weeks ago. We were there with one simple message:
Crafting can help Families Connect
Every parent I've met is interested in helping their kids unplug from the computer and video games and reconnect with the family. Many of us find it difficult to talk, because sometimes it's just too intense to talk unless we're Shoulder to Shoulder working on a project together, driving in the car or walking. When your hands or feet are occupied, that's when the stories and worries spill out.
We had lots of help from our wonderful friends at Darice, who generously donated Crayons, Colored Pencils and Paper Foam for the event. Darice is fantastic find for all your craft needs! They have tubs of foam and every craft supply imaginable.
We cut long strips of paper foam to create personalized wrist bands for the kids. They loved them!
