Many parts of our country are still in lockdown and we are all staying home – keeping ourselves and others around us safe. We are all definitely looking for things to keep our little ones engaged. One of the best ways to entertain and engage children while keeping them thinking actively is indulging in Art and Crafts.
YouTube is an excellent guide to at-home art or craft activities with kids and the perfect go-to when you are simply looking for something fun to do! There’s a whole load of Art and Craft tutorials there to help you with ideas and instructions. And all you’ll need to do is follow the easy step by step instructions laid out right there on your screen. We love using these tutorials on YouTube – mainly because – you see people doing things “right there in front of you”. Things are made and you can see how it works. And more chances that you can replicate it. And what’s more you can follow the instructions, but you have the flexibility to change as you need or wish to.
With the seemingly endless supply of new videos every day, you are sure to find something that you like. So you can learn dot painting one day and do canvas the next. The ideas are unlimited. Here are some of the best YouTube Channels to head to when you need some inspiration.
