Crafting never goes out of style! Why? Because it's an enjoyable activity that provides lots of benefits. It's easy; it helps reduce stress; it builds children's self-esteem and learning skills; it's emotionally pleasing; and most importantly -- it's fun!
Nothing is quite as satisfying as making something with your own hands -- no matter what your age or skill level. Because crafting is such a well-liked pastime, the Craft & Hobby Association (CHA) has dedicated the entire month of March to celebrating all that crafting has to offer.
During March, craft stores around the country will offer special classes, demonstrations, tips and projects to get customers involved. Craft and hobby retailers nationwide will offer a variety of fun-filled craft activities to introduce families and kids to the joys of crafting. All are encouraged to take that great kid in their lives -- a child, grandchild, niece/nephew, neighbor or someone who is simply a kid at heart -- to their local craft store to enjoy the festivities.
