The wide smile on a child's face.
The excitement in a young voice.
The pride and enthusiasm seen in small eyes. What a delight this is for both the young and the "young at heart"!
Sharing your love for crochet and knitting will bring these joys to all who invest their time and talents to teach a child!
Children who are taught to crochet and knit learn so much more than just "stitches". They learn problem solving and math skills. Their reading skills, motor skills, and eye-hand coordination are enhanced. They find an outlet for their creativity which builds self-confidence and self-esteem.
The following suggestions are "time tested" and we hope that you will find them useful as you prepare to share your talents and skill with young people. If you are teaching in a group session or one-on-one, these "quick reference tips" will prove to be useful.
