Teaching Children Math With Crafts

How to Use Crafts to Teach Children Math Skills

Find out how you can teach children math skills using crafts. Some kids may not agree, but math is a very important part of life. We use math to buy groceries, set a wrist watch, bake cookies, keep score at a sporting event, and many other things. Many of these things can be used as a math lesson without kids even knowing it. There are also many creative ways to reinforce math skills.
