Best Art Kits for Kids
Encourage critical development, problem solving and hands-on learning with Banyan Tree Kidz’ best art kit for kids.
Banyan Tree Kidz’s art kits invite young artists to express themselves and follow their natural curiosity. The arts in STEAM education are a combination of physical arts, history, social science, fine arts, contemporary arts and music. Educators finally understand that the marriage of arts with humanities leads to enhanced skills in adaptability, productivity and innovation. These skills are essential in leading a successful personal life and an enriched career.
Arts as part of STEAM education are vital to harness the full potential of other core STEM subjects. Arts allow children to develop social, mental and emotional skills, which are important to expand a child’s ability to interact with their surroundings. Most importantly, art allows and encourages self-expression and originality. Arts makes the STEM topics more enjoyable and leads to thought provoking problem-solving and wonderful innovations.
STEAM education has proven benefits such as enhanced visual learning, fine motor skills, confidence, better decision-making skills and improved academic performance.
Benefits of Arts in STEM education:
Enhanced fine motor skills: Children who take part in music classes or spend time crafting and drawing at an early age have better hand-eye coordination and better control over their movements which is essential for several technologically advanced jobs such as robotics, surgeons, and mechanical engineers.
Enhanced Decision Making skills: Freedom of self-expression and creative autonomy allows for confidence, and improved problem solving.
Visual learning: Visual arts combined with science activities and STEM projects helps children absorb information in a different manner. It not only makes learning more engaging, interactive and fun but also enhances observational skills and the ability to view things outside of the box. Drawing activities help children learn faster and more effectively. Artists, architects, engineers, photographers all require the skill of spatial intelligence.
Creativity: Creativity is essential for technological advancement especially in this rapidly changing digital landscape.
Learning through play: Arts in STEAM education makes learning engaging and increases the attention span of children. When children enjoy the projects that they do, they are inclined to retain the information effectively.
Combining arts and science ignites imaginative thinking and analytical thinking. These skills are important for success in and out of the workforce.
