If you are getting ready for your 100 days of school, add some fun crafts for great hands-on activities. Check out these easy 100th days of school crafts to make with your homeschool.
Why make crafts on your 100 days of school?
Crafts involve the hands and fingers. Using fingers and hands are essential to fine motor skill development, control, and hand-eye coordination – just to name a few things. Doing crafts from a young age helps motor skills to improve and increase.
Crafts increase dexterity (hand skill performance) in general, they encourage self-expression and more. Making crafts help kids with their creativity, memory, and decision-making skills.
As they follow instructions for their crafts they develop the ability to be unique and make the crafts their very own.
