Art & Craft
Art allows children to develop their creativity, which will be beneficial to them throughout their lives. Doing something creative allows for self-expression, which allows children to express (and cope with) their emotions. It also promotes mental development in children by giving them opportunities to try out new ideas, ways of thinking, and problem-solving techniques. When children manipulate art materials with their fingers, they are developing fine motor skills by using those small muscles in their hands. As they learn to use both hands at the same time, their bilateral coordination improves.
