I grew up where my parents did nothing.

now my kids, well we spend alot of time together (maybe because there's so many of us) but thats what my kids remember. I love doing arts and crafts, so my kids have shared scrapbooking with me, my dd crochets with me, my kids love to sew with my machine. Those are the memories they will have because I did it with them.

I will say that kids now a days have no imagination, my little people are getting better but compare them to my own kids, no way. To this day my own kids (who are older) still will play crazy imaginary games, and I join them too esp. in the pool. But thats the fun we create.

so arts and crafts can be a good thing if done together and the kids are enjoying but when you need to force them, forget it.
