Local artist Jacob Breeden says spring and summer are perfect times to get creative with your kids through arts and crafts
The Benefits include:
– Crafting encourages key visual-processing skills, such as pattern recognition, detecting of sequences and spatial rotation. (Other content areas, like math and reading, share these exact skills!)
– Hands-on arts and crafts accelerate the development of muscles in the hands and fingers, improving fine motor skills essential for school success in the earliest formal years.
– When encouraged to engage more independently during creative time, children will be motivated to pay close attention, which improves focus and working memory skills.
Projects can be quick and affordable or long term and more complex. By simply turning off the screens for a few hours a week you can make a HUGE difference in your child’s future as well as strengthening your relationship with your child.
