Craft work is a great fun. It brings out the artist inside you! Craft is actually different from all other art or fun activities as it lets you create something imaginative. It enhances the mental capability of ideas and implementation of ideas while following a procedure. It would not be wrong saying if you want your kids to be intelligent and creative then, despite those theory books you got to have them creative craft work.
Craft Activities for Kids are Significant for Mental Growth
Ask your kids what they understand easily in schools, practical experiments or theoretical concepts. The answer would be the practical experiments, what is the logic behind it? Kids’ brain is in the learning stage and is desperately curious to try things their own. And apart from that, there are brilliant logics you should know about craft activities and how it positively improves kids’ mental growth and intelligent quotient as well.
Craft work can sharpen motor skills:
Let’s call it hand and eye coordination. What kid sees, draws, colors and manipulates lines and patterns, actual hones his motor skills. While doing craft work, shapes and cutting of raw material in accordance with making a final prototype, kids have to decide and measure proper dimensions of pieces to cut and join, hence this increases their motor skills.
Improves executive functioning of mind:
Yeah! It sounds like an executive officer in a multinational company! Who knows, it could be true one day! But here, ‘executive functioning’ is the ability of mind executing the different aspects of how mind impulses work. Giving focus on one target at a one time, instant decision making, quality and working memory of mind are some essential developments that occur in mind.
Lets them speak up their mind:
Craft work is a project, a project that needs ideas and execution of ideas with intellect creativity. Even though, kids are provided DIY tutorials so they can craft anything easily, there are more chances that kids want to pour their own ideas and creativity to make the project a unique and more significant. And this could lead them to speak up their mind or what they have to say!
Craft activities can bring out the decision making quality:
If you ask a kid that what would be the best when it comes to color sky, or grass, indeed he could use any of the colors, but in the end it would be his choice to use pencil colors, wax colors or water colors! It’s his decision making, quality that comes from mind on the spot. As you know, water color needs time to get dried, but that’s not same in pencil or wax colors.
Keep trying attitude:
There are moments of failure! Nothing can be done in first attempt, but what matters is if the kid has ‘never give up’ attitude and he keeps trying! Once the kids start craft work and find attracted and interested in craft work, he’d not give up easily rather complete the task anyhow.
Craft work makes kids imaginative:
Only alive mind can imagine not the dead ones! But, it’s been scientifically proved that if you want your mind to be imaginative then you better keep doing something imaginative. And craft work lets you craft anything and that’s how their mind would be become more imaginative.
It makes their mind technical and artistic (Balanced mind):
The thing is- it should not be only technical nor even the artistic only, there should be a balancing in between technical and artistic ways. That’s what comes out from mind when a kid starts working something practical.
Craft work means lots of fun:
A boring kid can’t have a creative mind! There are thing which he wants to explore, ruin, play and fun all the time and consequently it’ll make them happy and refresh their mind and improve working capability. More a kid is happy, more he got active mind!
