A child appreciates the opportunity to make his own personal choices, given healthy limits. You can give your child ownership over craft supplies shopping for a home project. With so many options to choose from, making his own decisions will allow your child to practice visual discernment and self-control.
Part of a shopping trip is the expiration made possible by an unhurried, relaxed pace. Good choices are usually made when there is time for consideration. You should offer guidance while your child decides, but you should ultimately trust your child's decisions even if they aren't to your taste. A craft store allows for choices based on creativity and not essential needs, hence, your child can have plenty of freedom.
Your child will learn to handle things carefully and how to replace back things on their shelf when required. The spirit of collaboration between you and your child will make him feel important in value. His autonomy is a first step towards knowing personal responsibility and ownership of decisions.
