With its enthusiastic young contestants and its hands-on creativity challenges, this is as family friendly a competition show as you can find on TV. You need not be a crafting aficionado to enjoy the process of the contestants' planning and construction of their respective projects. It's always fun -- and a little surprising -- to see how three different teams of kids approach the same task in different ways, and how each contestant puts his or her personal stamp on the work.

The Big Fun Crafty Show's projects would make similarly simple projects for kids and parents with some basic supplies, tools, and ingenuity. Beyond crafting and artistic expression, there's also an element of engineering at play in these challenges, as the kids must make sure their projects not only support themselves, but also function appropriately for whatever task they're designed for. This entertaining and engaging contest emphasizes the value of designing, creating, and working as a team, all of which are excellent themes for kids.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
