Activities for Kids

Art and craft are some of the most brilliant activities in which you can engage your child as a toddler or even a grown-up. Dabbling in these activities can be very beneficial for any child’s development. Many of us being from a science background want our kids to take interest in the same and this proves to be a great way. Making them learn via art & craft can be fun and children would also take an initiative and learn. So, keeping that in mind we thought of combining art and craft with some science. And that is why we have researched some robots crafts which will help your child’s imagination to grow.

These are super-easy and fun to build and can be built with a minimal amount of materials. The materials required for the same are very easily available and not expensive at all. You can find them almost everywhere even on amazon, Flipkart, etc.
