For over 30 years, Mister Rogers has been a television friend to young children, helping them grow both "inside and out" as they learn along withi him every day. Arts & Crafts brings to you his deep understanding of children and how they grow, and features practical, hands-on activities for your classroom.

Just look inside Arts & Crafts -- there is so much to do! Children learn self-expression as they create string paintings, torn-paper pictures, and a "museum of love." Children practice following directions and learn about sequence as they create crafts such as handprints cards, coin banks, and crayon window hangings. And, to develop the ability to play creatively and use their imagination, children make dramatic play props such as hats, pretend telescopes, and puppets.

As a teacher, you have many ways to help children express themselves and learn through art. Now, with these ideas from Mister Rogers and Arts & Crafts, you will have a wonderful resource to support you in this important work.
