31 Days of Crafting: Creating Tradition


March is National Craft Month! All month long we’ll be sharing stories from your peers about what they are doing to celebrate and how they are encouraging others to discover the benefits of creativity.

This is a guest post from AFCI Staff, Keri Cunningham.

Every month is craft month in our house!  Crafting with my three year old daughter, Mae, is one of my favorite things to do.   We started crafting as soon as she could sit up straight in her highchair.  I’ve always had an interest in creative activities and was excited to be able to pass that along to my daughter.

She has quickly grown into a spunky toddler full of curiosity which still makes crafting a perfect activity.   Currently she loves to paint and make things out of Play-doh.

We will be celebrating National Craft Month by using the craft kits she received for her birthday. We are also excited to try some DIY slime making.  Wish us luck!

  1. Mae is certainly a creative toddler and pretty darn adorable too! Thanks for sharing a great story. I’ve been doing an Art Club with my nieces and nephews and it has helped them in so many ways! And of course I gain so much joy from watching them be excited, intrigued and inspired. Here’s to many more crafting days for Mae and all the wonderful little ones in our lives. (And for us!)
