The importance of arts & crafts to a child’s development

The importance of arts and crafts in children's development cannot be underestimated and that is why it continues to be a priority in the school curriculum. There are considered to be four types of development skills seen in early years: motor, language and communication, social and emotional, and cognitive.  In the early development stages, you will see a wide range of art activities and materials in your child's nursery classroom; from painting to making cards, folding paper to messy play, all of it is integral to these four areas of development.  However, arts and crafts are not just resigned to the early years' classroom - no, they are an important aspect of development for children of all ages - as well as for adults.

10 Reasons why crafting is good for the mind

Aside from the fact that crafting is relaxing and fun, there are several other reasons why sitting down and engaging in a craft activity is good for children of all ages (and their parents): 

  • Crafting develops fine motor skills in infants - holding a pencil properly is a developmental expectation at age 6 but encouraging your baby and toddler to play with crayons, pencils and chalks will make the process less of a chore and prepare them for writing tasks in school.  
  • Crafting improves coordination, creating mastery in using both hands.  
  • Crafting improves relationships, allows children to socialise, and creates a greater bond with others.     
  • Getting creative with art improves communication skills and vocabulary, particularly when engaging in family crafting as children can discuss their choices, follow instructions and learn words associated with colour and texture.
  • Art breeds creativity and choice - there's no need for rules and so craft activities allow children to express themselves and cultivate confidence.
  • Participating in these art activities develops numeracy and critical thinking skills - counting how many stars to include on a picture or creating patterns and questioning decisions are all important life skills.
  • Crafting fosters mindfulness, enabling children to be in the moment, aware of their surroundings and concentrating on the task at hand.
  • Producing art-work encourages resilience, patience and perseverance 
  • Crafting activities improve attention span - seeing a craft project out from beginning to end provides children with the opportunity to see the finished product and the fruits of their labour.
  • Crafting has been proven to reduce stress and anxiety - research shows that taking time away from the stresses of life to concentrate on a craft project can be incredibly therapeutic.  Craft projects have even proved helpful to those suffering from degenerative illnesses such as dementia.
