If I could have a career or even just earn a living doing what I love most I would be an arts and crafts instructor. I enjoy crafting and am very talented and creative. I also love working with children. The thing I would enjoy most is teaching children to craft and make all sorts of projects.
Children who do crafts and especially children who do crafts from a young age develop differently. They are more aware of the world around them from a younger age and they more interested, as well. When children participate in arts and crafts they build self-confidence and develop self-disciple. Children who start crafting at a young age learn group and team work better and crafting opens new ways to understand and learn different subjects.
Arts and crafts also help children develop cognitively because they use problem solving and decision making skills when deciding what supplies to use, and what would work better for the project. Art is also a powerful tool for emotional development. Art allows children to express themselves in a creative and positive manner. Arts and crafts can be very social, especially with children in a classroom setting and being so, it helps children develop socially. It allows them to learn communication and cooperation with others.
Children are the future and to be able to influence the future by using arts and crafts to instill the fundamentals of life is an amazing way to change the world one project at a time.
