Craft Projects

     My craft resource does not include projects accompanied with lesson plans. Only brief descriptions, supply list and directions are discussed along with the photographs. I will include article links below for those of you who would like to continue in the debates over fine art vs craft. I believe, however, that elementary art educators and homeroom teachers find the use of crafts helpful to the development of both small motor skills and self confidence in their students. For this reason, I will include some craft ideas and helpful links under this category that may prove beneficial.
