About Krafty Kidz

What We Do

Krafty Kidz offer a wide range of arts & crafts activities and projects to suit groups of children and young people of all ages and abilities.  Krafty Kidz have also worked with the disabled and the elderly.

Krafty Kidz travel direct to your home or venue and provide all materials and equipment.  With years of experience in youth and play work, you can be assured your children are left in capable hands.  Arts & Crafts activities can be as simple as papercrafts and fabric painting, through to clay modelling and paper mache.

How We Began

Krafty Kidz was started in 2007, when out-of-school leader and youth worker, Catherine, combined her experience with working with children and young people to her love of all things arty.  She has since delivered arts and crafts activities for large events and corporations, schools, community groups, and family birthday parties, with a proven track record for fun and safe creativity.

Testimonials

 

“We have had Krafty Kidz on offer to our pupils as part of our Extended Schools Programme for years. Our pupils eagerly look forward to it, right from the youngest to the oldest. In questionnaires regarding choice of activities for the following year, Krafty Kidz is always one of the pupils favourites.”

St. Canice’s Primary School, Feeny

“As part of our children’s programme in Garvagh Community Building, Krafty Kidz facilitated a St Patrick’s Day Workshop and two-week long arts and crafts workshops in the summer. These workshops were well organised and professionally run allowing the children to have a lot of fun creating their masterpieces.  We will definitely be using Krafty Kidz again! Thank you.” Claire Millar – Garvagh Community Group

“If you are looking for a well organised, professionally delivered, fun children’s party we would recommend you look no further than Krafty kids.  Great value for money.   Enjoy!” Liam and Suzie Tracy

Benefits of Arts & Crafts

Arts & Crafts Develop…

  • Problem-solving skills develop from experimenting with a wide range of arts and crafts materials.
  • Decision making is constant and continuous in assembling and decorating projects.
  • Visual thinking skills and three-dimensional information processing are exercised in the process of assembling materials.

  • Self-expression is the foundation of art making.
  • Crisis intervention art is something you can use to help children handle stress and the trauma of any community crisis.
  • Sensory stimulation from art materials awakens children’s five senses and teaches a healthy outlet for pleasure and satisfaction.

  • Sharing of art materials requires social interaction and cooperation.
  • Cooperation inherent in art activities encourages relationship building and friendship skills.
  • Shy or less verbal children can participate comfortably and be more active in a non-competitive environment like the art room.

  • Fine motor skills are developed using a wide range of arts and crafts materials, craft accessories, and art room tools.
  • Eye-hand coordination prepares children for the real life tasks at school and home.
  • Self-esteem correlates positively with a child’s sense of physical coordination and mastery.
