The thing that's nice about printing is that the talent threshold is low - a kid doesn't have to draw like Rembrandt to make a cool stencil or rubber stamp and achieve a satisfying result. I think that's what gives me the heeblies about crafts the most - all that work and then that crushed look on a kid's face if the result is not what he or she had envisioned. With printing, some of that expectation can be managed, and in fact, the end result can be more interesting than the original concept.
