The Get Creative program is an outlet for children to be creative and have some fun!
Little do they know that it is so good for their development as well! Craft require children to use both of their hands together. This skill of bilateral coordination is very important in other areas including writing, tying shoes, typing and much more! Art projects help children develop fine motor coordination which translates into other areas of their lives including dressing and eating.
It also effectively teaches self regulation, as crafts that require drying require waiting ! This is a great lesson for children to demonstrate self control and patience. When things don’t go exactly as planned, it promotes flexibility in children. They also learn that there is s no right or wrong way in exploring one’s own creativity!
Involving in art and craft activities is also a self-esteem booster. Completing the art and craft projects successfully will gives children a great sense of accomplishment and pride.
