The benefits of art and craft for children with SEND
Children love doing art and craft, and it’s good for them, too! Here are just a few ways children can benefit from activities such as this lovely Christmas tree project:
- Bilateral Coordination – Doing things like colouring and cutting, require children to use both of their hands together. This skill is important in other areas including writing, tying shoes, typing.
- Fine Motor Coordination – In order to draw shapes, cut patterns, and write, children are required to use their fine motor coordination. These skills similarly translate to other areas of their lives including dressing and eating.
- Self Regulation – Crafts which require drying require waiting! This is a great lesson for children to demonstrate self control and patience. Also, things might not go exactly as they had hoped! Crafts are a great way to promote flexibility as well as an acceptance that there is no right or wrong way in exploring one’s own creativity!
- Self-esteem Booster – Although we want to challenge our children, it is also important to choose arts and crafts that are appropriate for your student’s skill level. Completing projects successfully will give them a great sense of accomplishment and pride.
