Arts and crafts as a subject in the school curriculum are typically taken for granted as a must for children and young kids in the formal education setup. But, over the past several years, many schools have unfortunately cut down on arts in their school curriculum. Music, painting, theatre- they are fast disappearing.
There is no doubt that arts and crafts are fun activities for kids. Be it coloring with crayons or making miniature statues from clay, folding paper to create fine origami or designing a handmade birthday card, there are several arts and crafts activities, which can enhance the interest of the children and exploit their artistic potential.
By introducing arts and crafts to the kids and involving them in such activities in schools, you will invest in building their cognitive, physical, and social development.
