Handicrafts for Homeschoolers

We live in an increasingly technological world. With computers and automation everywhere we turn, where do handicrafts come into play? Does working with our hands and doing things the old-fashioned way even have a place in educating our modern day children?


In this workshop, we’ll dive into the timeless benefits of handicrafts and how we can incorporate them into our homeschool in a way that will bring your family together, inspire creativity, and lay the foundation for a rich and broad home education.

Handicrafts for Whole Body Learning

Charlotte Mason tells us that “the child is only truly educated who can use his hands as truly as his head, for to neglect one part of our being injures the whole.” Handicrafts are often nudged aside as an “extra” but in truth, developing the creative side of the brain and learning to use one’s hand is just as important as arithmetic and reading.


Children can learn handicraft skills that challenge their capabilities, bless others, and make the world a more beautiful place. When handicrafts become part of the atmosphere of your home, children will develop fine motor skills, creativity, self-awareness, and so much more.


This workshop will include details on how to introduce handicrafts in the early years and during formal lessons as well as ideas on handicrafts to get started.

When you join the Rooted Childhood community, you’ll be inspired to create opportunities to nourish your child’s head, heart, and hands through simple moments at home. Through seasonal and literature-inspired collections, families across the globe share in songs, stories, poems, and meaningful arts and crafts.
