Acrylic craft paint vs. acrylic household latex paint

Does anyone know the difference between the two paints? I have used both household acrylic latex paint and acrylic craft paint on clay pots. The household one is thicker. I have researched this and cannot find an answer that makes sense to me. Thanks!

Hello...I just read in one of my artist books that the difference is that craft acrylics are made to last for years and house paints aren't. Hope this helps.
