History of National Children's Craft Day

Crafting brings a lot of benefits to children, especially arouses imagination and rich creativity. When making crafts, body parts such as hands and eyes are combined rhythmically and skillfully, from which children control themselves more proficiently, without being confused or tripping. For example, holding a pen, pastel, or paintbrush in one hand can help your baby fine-tune his fine motor skills. This can improve coordination and build strength, which in the long run has many benefits, such as helping your baby's ability to write and use a pen as they grow up.

Children can choose to make anything or choose to draw from their memory of an object or animal they have learned in art class or copy from a certain book. When recalling or copying those things, the brain will be stimulated to remember longer, make decisions faster, and make the baby smarter.

In addition to creating the joy of creating an object, the baby also enjoys the joy of the feeling of accomplishment, successfully doing a thing that he thinks up. There are many crafts suitable for children's ages such as painting, drawing, cutting, pasting, even simple things like imprinting on paper also make children very excited.
