Men are sometimes stuck with a stereotype. They are hardy, and burly, and rough. They are seldom seen as graceful and creative, and they definitely do not do crafts! Knitting, calligraphy, even cooking! These are definitely NOT for the modern man. Or so they say. But times are changing and stereotypes are being broken!
It is not always obvious. But men are extremely creative! They handle tons of DIY (do-it-yourself) projects that usually go unnoticed! From simple plastic arrangements to big wooden projects, there are many crafts that manly skills can be put to use!
LEGO is an often unnoticed craft that lots of boys and young men (and even grown-ups) participate in. With hundreds of pieces and thousands of possible combinations, playing with LEGO blocks has become a massive commercial industry that hinges on the creative juices of its users. From simple shapes and structures to massive movie replicas and designs that cost tens of thousands of pesos, LEGO is a creative craft that men are proud to be part of!
There are many possibilities and opportunities for men to become engaged in crafts. Let’s not forget that some of the world’s best designers and artists are men. Arts and crafts are a lot of fun especially if they become productive hobbies. Many skills are untapped and unknown and only needs a chance to be used and discovered. Maybe you have a skill that you are not aware of yet. Try a new hobby today and who knows? You might have a new craft to master!
