Making crafts is an easy and fun way to spend time with the kids and get them to develop their creativity and imagination. Children, through handicrafts, learn to develop and project their ideas on paper, are more patient, develop their motor and artistic skills, and learn to organize themselves and take responsibility for their activities. These are just some of the benefits of arts and crafts.
Here are a few more:
- Development of psychomotor skills. Making crafts with different types of materials (size, texture…) means that children work on fine motor skills by exploring different materials and working on coordination and precision.
- Helps to solve problems. As they make crafts, they will have to overcome obstacles and solve problems as they arise.
- They learn to work as a team. Teamwork is essential for children to get used to interacting with their peers. If done as a family, the family bond will be strengthened and a pleasant and entertaining time will be spent together.
- Development of creativity and imagination. Active participation involves using your imagination at all times to select the craft you want to do and use all your creativity to carry it out. Working on creativity inevitably trains the right hemisphere of the brain, which is responsible, among other things, for emotions and spatial vision.
- Increases self-esteem. In childhood, there is a need for exposure to challenges that contribute to exploring personal possibilities and solving problems with autonomy. By making handicrafts we help them to know their capacity to respond and at the same time improve their self-esteem.
