The benefits of encouraging children to be creative are many: heightened motor skills, stronger self-confidence, and improved decision-making—among many others. Penguin Random House has a wide selection of books and guides that can be used by children of all ages to explore their artistic sides through a variety of mediums.
For children interested in drawing, DRAW 50 ANIMALS offers simple, step-by-step instructions on how to create a full menagerie.
For aspiring architects, there are multiple Lego guides on how to build everything from neighborhoods, to castles, to trains, to your own personal robot.
From simple crafts to the more obscure pursuits of felt puppies and cat castles, there is a project in here for every kid (or your own inner child!).
