Right now most YW's programs have a broad approach to acquiring knowledge - a little bit from a whole lot of topics, with a unique activity each week. But if I want to impart actual skills to the girls, I need more time than 90 minutes. So that requires a deep approach.
As I've discussed from one end of the internet to the other, I am a craft apologist. I think crafting has a plethora of benefits and is good for everyone, even those who don't feel naturally inclined. Even so, I can recognize that what we end up making when we have 90 minutes and no budget really doesn't have much value to anyone. Do I believe there is value in crafting? Heck yeah! Do I think there is value in painting a piece of wood and applying vinyl letters....well....um....no.
