Let your child indulge in creative, artistic play and discover their creative side with our Arts & Crafts sessions.
Your child will paint, make and create something different each week. A great chance for your child to get creative with other children whilst you meet other parents, and take something special home every week that your child has created and watch their artistic side develop!
Creative thinking and creative problem solving are fast becoming some of the key skills employers are looking for in the workforce. Schools know this and creative play is being incorporated into the curriculum for younger children. But don’t leave it until your kids get to school, join in our sessions and get started today - without having to deal with the mess!
How does Arts & Craft benefit my child?
Arts & Crafts helps develop fine motor skills and helps them become writing ready before they start school. Even at a young age, creative activities help to develop basic maths skills such as geometry (size and shape), measuring, and sorting.
There is also a great deal of problem solving and concentration which happens as children learn to take what is in their head, and put it onto paper. In the early years they need to ask themselves basic questions like will this glue be strong enough, if I cut here will it fit, or how can I stop the paint from dripping? In solving these problems they learn about the creative thinking process.
Creative play is a great way to build your child’s communication skills in a fun and supportive environment. When children are engaged with their chosen material you’ll notice they talk to themselves about what’s happening. This in turn leads to building their vocabulary and developing their imagination.
