Benefits of Arts and Crafts for Children
Editorials News | Jul-11-2017
Children derive many vital benefits while working on arts and crafts activities. However, there is a difference between the two terms. Art involves unstructured and non defined activities in which a child explores his imagination and creativity. Craft, however, involves structured and well-defined activities with a specific goal in mind. Some benefits derived out of such activities are listed below:-
Imagination and Self Expression- A child with a paintbrush in his hands suddenly gets the ability to express creatively with the use of vivid colors and art expressions. Colors can also be used to relate to a certain feeling and communicate effectively through symbols.
Strengthening Academics- Integrating art and craft into the child’s academics can genuinely make learning easy and attractive. For example, if a child learns to draw a famous character from a story book, he will indulge more into the story and develop a sense of academic interest in the character.
Life Skills- The process of making one’s own creation and observing other people’s creations makes children understand and appreciate the strengths of others. Through craft, a child also learns to communicate visually and understands the concept of following instructions and executing them to perfection to get the best result.
