What is French for...


Recommended Posts

I'm having difficulty finding a translation for this.

What French word or phrase would be used to describe the crafty / arty projects that children do at home / playgroup / nursery?

'Les arts plastiques' seems to be for adults, more fine arts.

'Artisanal' seems to refer more to craftsmen, like joiners, jewellery makers etc.

Cheers all

Where did you get the idea that arts plastiques was fine arts from?  I cannot think of anything else it could be and would say that arts plastiques is for kids too.

If in doubt about things french go onto something like google france or yahoo france.

In this case, just put in something like arts plastiques maternelle, and lots will come up including stuff that is obviously done by toddlers.
