A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this website.
Kids can learn lots of basic concepts on DLTK's Crafts for Kids, an educational site that's maintained by a mother of two. In addition to ABCs and 123s, kids will learn about holidays, cultures, animals, nutrition, weather, and much more. There are also more advanced activities for older kids -- like how to write checks and balance a checkbook -- that demonstrate how skills they learn in school are used in the "real world." Although the site is rather low-tech, there's no shortage of activities that combine learning with fun.
Site features plenty of ideas for simple, wholesome fun.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that DLTK's Crafts for Kids offers fun craft ideas for kids ages 2 and up. Some of the crafts need parental supervision, and many need a printer. The instructions are framed by a banner ad at the top, and there's another large ad that links to a fad diet site.
Is It Any Good?
With an abundance of printables and a wealth of ideas on how to put all those empty baby food jars (as well as other materials) you've kept "for someday" to good use, DLTK's Crafts for Kids offers users a seemingly limitless number of craft activites. There are many ways to find just the right activity, but it would be nice to be able to search by age group somehow, such as "Toddlers" or "Preschoolers." Still, it's easy enough to find something for everyone.
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.
