The early years are a critical time for developing lifelong skills
When kids use their fingers to manipulate art materials they are developing their fine motors skills as they use those small muscles in their hands. Their bilateral coordination skills improve as they learn to use both hands at the same time.
All this happens when they paint, colour, glue and cut. The quicker their fine motors skills develop the more they can do on their own, from eating by themselves to tying their own shoelaces, to holding a pencil and learning to write.
Improving literacy skills through art and crafts cover a wide range of areas – from speaking and reading to listening and understanding. When kids make art or crafts they get to talk about their work which develops their communication skills. They learn new vocabulary from parents and use their listening and reading skills when following instructions.
Get your child started with math skills learning about and recognizing different shapes, counting and sorting their art supplies and even measuring out lengths and sizes of art materials.
By helping your child develop their creativity you allow for self-expression and cope with their feelings. It also fosters mental growth by providing opportunities for trying out new ideas, new ways of thinking and problem-solving.
Created by a Child Development Expert
All activities are created in Hong Kong by our founder Julie Stockdale, an experienced early childhood teacher and mother, and are designed to cater to the developmental needs of small children.
Each ActivityBox contains fun opportunities to cut, glue, assemble, imagine, follow instructions and even create special, one-of-a-kind toys. Children will master essential skills and build confidence – with you as their partner in development.
In children, creativity develops from their experiences with the process, rather than concern for the finished product. Creativity is not to be confused with talent, skill, or intelligence. Creativity is not about doing something better than others, it is about thinking, exploring, discovering, and imagining.” – Mary Ann Kohl
