When I think of the word art I think of paintings, drawings, and sculptures that you would see in a museum.  Now when I think of the word craft, I think of making something out of toothpicks or macaroni necklaces.  A craft is something you make with your hands, like physically put it together while art is something that you create from scratch.

Over the summer I worked at Live Oak Morning School with the two year old class, most every Monday I planned an art lesson.  This lesson would include drawing a picture of their family, coloring a page out of a coloring book, or painting a flower.  On Fridays I would plan for crafts, which would include making a macaroni necklace or a pipe cleaner caterpillar.  See, art is something you create while a craft is something you build while following instructions.
