Macrame Crafts for Kids

Macrame involves tying knots in various types of cords to craft a wide variety of projects, from accessories and jewellery to clothing and furniture. While macrame not only entertains kids as they create all sorts of wearable decorations, it is also beneficial in developing hand-eye coordination, planning and strategy skills, as well as providing a social hobby to help them make new friends.
