Let's Get Crafty!

Posted on:

Time to break out the glitter, construction paper, and hot glue guns because March is National Craft Month!

CGPL has a plethora of crafting books that can inspire even the youngest of crafters. Crafting isn't just a hobby; it's a wonderful way for families to bond, express themselves, and unleash their imagination together. Whether you're a seasoned crafter or just starting out, there's something for everyone to enjoy during this special month dedicated to all things handmade. Here are just a few of the many benefits crafting can have for children of all ages, according to Scholastic:  


  • Develops fine motor skills 
  • Boosts counting and pattern recognition 
  • Teaches shapes and colors 

Elementary Schoolers: 

  • Encourages critical thinking 
  • Builds resilience and persistence 
  • Supports literacy

Teens and tweens: 

  • Supports self-esteem 
  • Encourages creativity 
  • Develops patience
