Every time we tend to entertain our children with videos on the mobile or by putting cartoons on the TV, why not start the month of February with Crafts that enhance your imagination? You can find the materials easily without leaving the house and it is a good plan to strengthen ties and spend more time with the little ones in the house.
Lysmon's psychologists agree that Crafts favor creativity and reinforce cognitive processes. Creative children are much more decisive and able to function in various scenarios because they are not afraid to make mistakes. In addition, the development of creativity at an early age contributes to children:
- Gain confidence in themselves.
- Get good grades in class.
- Improve your mood and maintain high self-esteem.
- Learn to face life's problems.
The teaching staff of Lysmon Bilingual Infant Schools applies different teaching methodologies and organizes games and exercises appropriate to their age in order for students to enhance their ingenuity and imagination and that once they grow up, no obstacle becomes an impediment to achieve their dreams. In addition, in our classrooms we work in recycling activities so that boys and girls learn to be more responsible with the environment. In fact, we have developed a 2030 Agenda to contribute to sustainable development in class. Therefore, we propose 10 Crafts infantiles To enjoy a pleasant family evening.
1. Crafts with plastic plates
Take advantage of the leftover plastic plates of your children's birthdays and use them to give them a second life. You can paint the dishes in colors, add stickers, glitter ... and turn the plate into a canvas for children to let their imagination fly. Even make shapes with them like goldfish or a sun with woolen threads.
2. Crafts with plastic cups
Plastic containers such as yogurts or birthday cups, like dishes, can also be recycled. Thus, children learn since childhood that anything has more than one use.
