Five Favorites: Involving Kids with Photocrafting

Everyone’s home now and that Includes kids of all ages. Seems like a good time to think about how the younger ones especially might get involved in photocrafting?

Hope you’ll add some ideas of your own in our Comments or on our Facebook page Photocrafting Fun.

Pinhole Press offers wonderful photocrafting opportunities and resulting products for hours of entertainment.
