Why DIY crafting is a great idea for the development of a child?

This means that for the development of the child and his brain it is necessary to train his hands. The development of fine motor skills in children is also important because the entire future life of a child requires the use of precise hand movements. All of this is also necessary to prepare the hand for writing and learning activities.
