Creativity Minute: The Creativity of Crocheting
Our crocheting classes teach kids a new skill while having fun and making projects that they will be proud to show off! Crocheting provides many benefits to children including: providing them the ability to express their creativity in a new way
Crocheting is a timeless form of creative expression that results in a beautiful and often useful creation. There are so many amazing stories that involve crocheting from sitting with grandma and learning new stitches, to finding that crocheting is a relaxation technique as well.
The grandma stories are the best because they are all filled with beautiful and generational memories. When you are involved in this form of creativity It’s like the thinking brain, always going a million miles an hour, gets to rest as you glide the hood in and out of the stitch spaces, celebration how pretty your creation is becoming. At “The Art Diner” we invite children to be as creative as they can be when they are doing their fun activities. We bring the party to you in New Jersey and Surrounding areas.
Recently I hosted a crocheting party and I was so amazed at how the children took onto the process.

Providing them the ability to express their creativity in a new way
Many children have a hard time expressing themselves. Their minds are so filled with excitement. Crocheting provides the children a new way to express their creativity.
When a child has successfully completed a crocheting project, their self-esteem increases. In this world today, the more children we can help feel confident, the better life will be.
Crocheting hones motor skills
The rounded wrist movements of crocheting help improve a child’s motor skills without over using the thinking brain. This helps the child focus on their creation while engaging both hands and both arms.
Helps children slow down and develop those areas of the brain that require offline stimulation.
A child’s brain is so saturated with exposure to technology, that any activity which allows them to slow down their brainwaves is great for their health. A developing brain is a sponge. Between the ages of 1 and 7, children are creating the program for their future.
Participants will first learn the basic of hand (finger) crocheting to create a simple chunky bracelet, then move on to working with crochet hook. Each student will go home with the skein of yarn that they are working with and a crochet hook so they can continue working on their projects at home.
