Over the past term the children have done some wonderful art and craft in the open workshops. We are using lots of recyclable material to stimulate the creativity of the kids who are attending the creative workshops.
Art and craft activities have many benefits on a physical, intellectual and social/emotional level. Painting, cutting, pasting, drawing, beading are all activities that enhance fine motor skills, dexterity and strength in the hands. Children can be creative and play with their imagination in the process of making and doing things with their hands.
Thank you to the Stanford and Gansbaai facilitators for enriching many children’s lives with the regular , consistent and fun groups that they offer every week.
