Here is a business idea, if you love art and crafts, you can teach this love to others, mainly children. Some of the crafts you can teach to children are; painting, scrapbook and drawing. Start by getting some crayons, glue, construction paper and paints.

Ask parents from your neighborhood if you can teach their children some crafts. You can also volunteer at your local library or community center and teach children and/or adults how to make things they never thought possible.

If this is your niche, go for it. Since you will be treating this as a business, you can charge whatever you like. It is recommended to be reasonable with your prices; you are only going to be making crafts for no more than an hour or two.

Other than your neighborhood five and dime store, you can get crafts from places like Michael's, Hobby Lobby or Oriental Trading. You can visit their websites at http://www.Michaels.com, http://www.hobbylobby.com or http://www.orientaltrading.com.

If you don't want to teach craft in person, due to time confliction, you can teach crafts online. Mona from CraftKlatch teaches how to make holiday crafts and coasters made from resin. You can log on to her YouTube channel title, CraftKlatch or you can go directly to her website at http://www.craftklatch.com.

Of course, to get your business out there, try social media sites like Yahoo! or Facebook. Purchase flyers and business cards at a reasonable price at http://www.vistaprint.com. Get information out through word of mouth.
