Benefits of crochet for kids

Crochet is a great craft for kids. Not only it keeps your little ones busy, but enhances their creativity as well. Here are other benefits of getting a crochet kit for your child: 

  • Improves fine motor coordination.
  • Boosts comprehension and problem-solving skills.
  • Challenges their imagination. The fun way!
  • Creating their own toy will make them feel accomplished. 

What age can you teach a child to crochet?

Between 5 and 8 years old, or as soon as they can follow directions. But please keep in mind that every child has their own pace.

Crochet is a craft that requires hand-eye coordination and attention to detail. Give them time to learn one stitch at a time.

Once they are comfortable with chaining, then encourage them to move on to the next skill. For the youngest, it’s best to keep them with the basics to avoid frustrations.

What size crochet hook is best for kids?

Hooks size 5.5mm (US I) and 6.00mm (US J) seem to be the perfect sizes for little hands. Also, make sure you choose the ones with the small and/or ergonomic handles.

I’ve asked this question recently in a Facebook group:

“If you have taught your kid or grandkid how to crochet, what size hook worded best?”

Here are the answers (I crossed out names for privacy):

Tips for choosing the best crochet kits for kids

Catching the interest of a child for a DIY project can come with surprises. Either they will love it right away, or it will take them some time. 

Therefore, investing in smaller kits could be a good idea to get started. Here are my tips:

  • Ask them before you order. Maybe they want to start with the basics or maybe with something more elaborated, such as stuffed animals.
  • Show them pictures and have them participate in the purchase decision.
  • Pick a simple kit with the essentials only, before investing in a more expensive kit.
  • Choose a kit with ergonomic, smaller hooks, that will fit the little hands.
  • Most importantly, make it fun, show them videos of kids crocheting!
