In a nutshell, it is well worth spending time doing arts and crafts with your Kinders. The trouble is that it can be very time consuming trying to find crafts suitable for a larger group kids. It is all too easy to spend hours on Pinterest and still not find anything that is doesn’t take hours of prep. So we came up with an idea to make your life a whole lot easier.
