What's the story?

CRAFTY KIDS CLUB is a French series (dubbed in English) about a group of 7- to 8-year-olds who enjoy making things and having fun. Clara, Ben, Li-mei, and Matt love DIY projects that require imagination and recycled materials. It's even more fun when their creations are used to help their families, friends, and neighbors. Whether they're using clotheslines and plastic water bottles to create a hanging wall garden or making wearable talismans for a costume, the gang is dedicated to using crafts to make everyone's lives brighter and better. At the end of each episode, there are step-by-step instructions on how to create the featured crafts. 

Is it any good?

This fun, colorful series does an excellent job of showing how arts and crafts can be used to teach problem-solving. The young cast members use their imagination, creativity, and critical thinking skills to come up with different ideas, which they then discuss and refine in order to come up with workable solutions. Meanwhile, they show how basic tools like scissors and glue, recycled items, and other everyday items can be easily used to create useful, handmade goods. Young arts and crafts lovers will enjoy Crafty Kids Club and no doubt be inspired to re-create the featured projects at home.
