Kuwaiti Lab – Think right (@q8ylab)
Kids, teenagers, and adults can all without a single doubt attest to how enjoyable an activity crafting is. Picking it up at any age can prove to be a pleasant experience for people which is why you’d be hard pressed to find children in the first few years of their life not engaging in crafting in some shape or form. Everything from picking up a piece of play dough and molding a shape from it, to scribbling on paper and the walls in your homes with a stray crayon, to even playing with their food who some describe as experimenting with your surroundings, can constitute to craftsmanship. The reason that contributes to craftsmanship being so important and a preferred activity for children, and anyone really, is because it helps in improving the motor skills of children and acquainting them with different materials and textures.
Anyone who is able to correctly use the skills they receive from being interested in craftsmanship from any times in their lives are able to develop these skills and grow into people who have incredible control over their motor skills and the ability to see the world through a more creative lens. They are able to create amazing works of art and practical objects because of their relationship with crafts that they nurtured from early ages. A common misconception that has held up is that this form is something that should be left behind as you grow older because it has no practical or financial benefits, but recently, with people teaching themselves how to work power tools and use the skills they learn from basic design thinking, they are able to make a living and enjoy crafting for a lot of reasons.
