Arts and Crafts in Early Childhood Education


The value of arts and crafts in early childhood education is well-established. There are several advantages to participating in these activities, be it creating something out of clay, drawing, coloring with crayons, or making homemade greeting cards.

That is why at Montessori Kid’s Land Academy, a leading preschool and infant center in Redlands, California, we make every effort to integrate arts into our curriculum. If you’re wondering how these could help your little ones, keep reading!

Below are a few of the many areas where your child can benefit from early childhood programs that incorporate arts and crafts:

  • Fine Motor Abilities

    Fine motor skills are essential skills that can be developed via art activities. Because children utilize the muscles in their fingers, wrists, and hands regularly while engaging in arts and crafts, these muscles build strength and dexterity, making other skills like writing much simpler!

  • Self-Expression

    Engaging in a creative activity such as arts and crafts allows children to express themselves in a meaningful, concrete, and productive way. Moreover, they may also feel a sense of accomplishment from creating something on their own.

  • Creativity and Innovation

    The ability to construct anything kids choose enables them to use their imaginations freely, thus nurturing their innovative skills. On the other hand, overcoming obstacles that may emerge when creating something can do wonders for their creativity.
