As Aunties, our relationships with our nieces and nephews are not just about exciting day trips, overnight trips and experiences. It quite often is the couple of hours here and there that we spend with these wonderful people. And it’s about creating memories in the times we have with them, short or long. And crafts are a great way to do this.
When they’re younger, they enjoy (and it’s important for everyone’s sanity) being kept busy trying new crafts, activities and games. As they get older the times together will change, but amazingly I find that everyone can get interested and excited by doing something with their hands and their creativity.
From colouring and simple games to putting together LEGOs (sometimes not so simple), to getting a bit messy painting and building to just having some plain old fun playing board games or cards. Every creative moment you spend together will be a learning and growing experience for all of you.
Check out some cool crafts and activities for you and your nieces and nephews.
