6 Benefits of arts and crafts!

Arts and crafts are integral part of a child's development at a very young age.

Fine Motor Skills

Children should start indulging in some crafting and arts as early as they can. The more they use their hand muscles while drawing, cutting, gluing, sticking, the quicker their coordination and fine motor skills develop. The faster their fine motor skills develop, the sooner they get a head start at performing other simple tasks on their own.

Early literacy

As children follow instructions from their teachers or parents, they develop better communication skills, and increase their vocabulary. When they are asked why they decided to create a certain drawing or chose a specific colour, they start developing logical reasoning skills. They learn decision making while picking a certain colour, a specific tool or preferring one craft activity to others.

Confidence

Instilling a sense of self-esteem and confidence in young minds is the single most important thing that parents should work on from an early age. When kids make arts or craft projects, they love showing it off to their parents, grandparents, and anyone who cares to listen. This gives them a sense of achievement. They also develop important virtues such as patience, finding out unique ways to solve a problem, and trial and error eventually can lead to success. They also realize that there is no right or wrong way to do a task.

Mathematical literacy

Children start recognizing different patterns, shapes, and sizes when doing arts and crafts. They learn to cut, measure and stick together materials of various sizes and lengths. Math is not often considered a favourite subject for children but acquiring math skills early on is known to have a positive developmental affect in preschool children. It is also the easiest and most engaging way to assist your child in acquiring essential mathematical skills as they grow older and start doing some serious math in school.

Creativity

Have you ever thought that you are not a creative person? This is a common belief in adults. Every individual is creative but it is a skill which needs to be developed at a very tender age. Creativity is developed through experiences, exploration and experimentation. To enhance your child’s creativity, it is essential for parents and educators to not focus on the finished product but on the process. There is no right or wrong way to make art and making mistakes is sometimes even encouraged.
