The Handy Hippo Kids Crafts store features all the basic necessities to build your home or school Craft Supplies. Here you can browse our selection of scissors, adhesives, chenille stems, popsicle sticks and more.
Because our market demographic is primarily women, coupled with several requests to add kid-friendly projects, in the Summer of 2013, Handy Hippo launched a brand new category for Kids Crafts. With so many of our female customers being stay at home mums and mothers of school-aged children, we wanted to offer a range of Kids Crafts that children could use for both home and school projects.
Instinctively, most of us know the importance of exposing our children to arts & crafts, as it relates to a child's development. But let's go beyond the factual information. When children create arts & crafts projects, it expands their ability to connect with the environment around them, their ability to perceive, remember, adapt, as well as provide new skill sets in self-expression, communication, social and especially with their fine motor skills.
Let's not forget that children imitate or follow their parent's behaviors. So if you are a painter or crafter, albeit card making, scrapbooking, knitting, sewing or something else, why not share your hobby with a child(ren). This will help a youngster develop their own crafting interests. Sharing your hobbies provide great opportunities for children to develop important life skills, which he or she can carry into their adult life and then pass on to their own children.
