Open Me! Recreation Advent Dec. 19

Crafting is fun, creative and fulfilling. It also develops young minds. 
Researchers from the Michigan State University have found a very strong correlation between childhood engagement in the creative arts and measurable success later in life. Children who were exposed to a wide variety of arts and crafts were more likely to create unique inventions that is worthy of patents, come up with ideas good enough to start a new company, or publish provocative papers on science and technology.
