Art & Craft

Art and Craft 

Arts and crafts is a critical component of any curriculum in an education setting. 

There is no doubt that arts and crafts are an enjoyable activity for children. It is also an integral part of their learning and development. From early mark making with chunky crayons and finger painting to using play dough and clay to create figures or objects. Children's fine muscle strength and dexterity develop through creative and open ended play. They learn to tell visual stories using their hands. 

Some of the benefits of engaging in the creative arts and crafts include:
