Have some fun with these crafty days in February! February is always an exciting month with Chinese New Year and Vallentine’s Day but there are also lots of other great days that you can make crafts to celebrate. These days aren’t specifically about crafts rather the important and fun celebrated days of February that can be used for crafting inspiration. We love days that are dedicated to special holidays and events that we can make crafts and fun activities for! Some of the days that we are really looking forward to include, Tooth Fairy Day and World Whale Day!
Making crafts with children gives the opportunity to talk about the special day, and adults to reflect on why the day is important. Or maybe it is just a day for celebrating something fun either way we don’t really need much of an excuse to have some crafty fun!
