Plastic canvas crafts for kids are wonderful for grandchildren and grandmothers to practice and learn together. Plastic canvas kits for kids are easy for beginners and provide early successes that are motivational for the little ones. They will want to create more and more.
Yesterday was magical! Our granddaughter was visiting with us. I excitedly showed her the beginnings of an afghan I am crocheting for her. Surprisingly, she recognized it immediately. “I did not know you could crochet, Joan-Joan.”
She is an artistic child, and I really just wanted her to approve of the colors I had chosen. I had no idea she even knew what “crocheting” meant.
Within the next few minutes, I pulled out the plastic canvas and yarn I had bought for her a few years ago. (I tend to buy everything too early for my grands – I am an excited grandma for sure!) We had a delightful time, playing with all the colors of yarn and the big needles. Her dad called this morning to tell me that she had chosen to stay home and sew rather than go swimming last evening! Now this grandma is beaming! Of course, I want her to swim and play outside, but I am thrilled that she is excited about plastic canvas crafts.
Now hopefully this little introduction to plastic canvas crafts for kids will lead her to a lifetime love of stitching. Stitching — cross stitch, crochet, plastic canvas – is meditative and relaxing and a wonderful hobby for anybody!

So today I am thankful – and dreaming of the hours we will spend stitching together and oooooohing and aaaaaaaahing over colors of yarn as only stitchers can do!
