Children love art & craft activities...and the best part is that there are so many emotional, mental and physical benefits to it.
Art and craft activities provide a fun and playful platform for children to create new things, helping them to think differently and to be innovative. The ability to solve any problems they might encounter, while working on a project, promotes creativity and builds resilience. Art and craft activities help create a sense of achievement and boost children’s self-esteem and confidence.
The countless range of products available to children today are also great for developing fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination. Art and craft activities empower children with positive emotional responses to learning.
To encourage more 'screen-free' time, it helps to find something the child is interested in and focus on art and craft in that area, for example, if a child loves space, find space-based activities to entertain and delight them. Other popular interest areas are dinosaurs, unicorns, fairies, transport and princesses, among other things.
Coding toys combine logical thinking with building and learning. Kids are learning coding skills, whilst having fun.
