March is not only a time for spring weather and fun outdoor activities but also a time to get crafty! Being National Craft Month, ideas are bringing people together in creative ways, and for all age groups too. Even if you don’t think you have a creative bone in your body, you should try to set a goal to do something new this month! Take your kids to a few places around your area and expand your crafting techniques. Not only will you begin to make fun decor for your household, you might even meet some new friends! Besides, it’s always beneficial to begin teaching your toddler or preschooler how to be a good friend. Below is a few places around town to have a playdate with other preschoolers and toddlers in the Cincinnati area.
Cincinnati Family Enrichment Center
The center offers a weekly multi-sensory story-time with themes, songs, and crafts for families with babies, toddlers, and preschoolers.
Duke Energy Children’s Museum
Visit the Duke Energy Children’s Museum and join a Mini Makers program. Interactive classes include discovering robotics, art with machines, and even Pisanki Eggs, a class special for the Easter month to learn this Polish egg decorating skill.
Mount Washington Educational Arts Center
Celebrate this spring weather and National Craft Month by having a party with family, friends, and their kids this month at the Mount Washington Educational Arts Center — creating parties with not only arts and crafts, but also dance, cooking, games, and more!
3 Sweet Girls Cakery
Take a group of kids on a rainy day to 3 Sweet Girls Cakery and be led in creative activities like decorating cupcakes, decorating chef’s hats, and other delicious cupcake crafts.
The Art Workshop
Children as young as 2 can develop their fine motor skills in addition to expanding creativity with a variety of art materials including clay, wood, and papier-mâché. Stories related to each class will be discussed as preschoolers work on projects involving sculpture, pottery, drawing, and painting.
