Let Your Child Do the Measuring

Look for crafts that require measuring skills. Make a no-sew fleece blanket with your child, which requires measuring, cutting, and tying skills. Other crafts that require measurement skills include scrapbooking and making jewelry. As an extension activity, work together to determine the measurements needed to make the craft larger or smaller.
