What is The Importance of Sensory Crafting

  1. Sensory crafting stimulates the senses. (When multiple sensory stimuli are triggered, new synapses develop within a growing brain.)
  2.  Moreover, sensory crafting promotes cognitive growth.
  3.  It strengthens fine motor control by exercising small muscles of the hands. 
  4.  It promotes language development.
  5. Sensory crafts spur creative exploration.
  6. Finally, sensory crafts increase focus and attention.

What is Process Art And Why Is It Important for Early Years

Process Art is fun and essential for early childhood development since it helps the body and brain to integrate tactile information in a creative way. Process art is perfect for little artists since the focus lies on the creation of the work – the process – and not the outcome. During this fun artistic process, your child learns how colors work, especially color mixing, while developing spatial awareness and sensory integration. 

What Are Complimentary Colors

With this Dinosaur sponge-printing kids craft, besides promoting hand-eye coordination and fine motor control, children get to explore different colors and how they look when placed next to each other. Children might discover that once they place complementary colors next to each other, they look brighter and bold.
