That is why, it is imperative that the kids should be encouraged to perform all those activities that are constructive and stimulate both the mind and the body. This makes crafts in any form all the more essential in the mental development of the child. Flower crafts are especially good as the children can get a sense of colors and see how a combination of colors gives rise to beauty.
