Arts and Crafts Promotes Relaxation and Creativity In Children
Research Suggests Art Therapy Could Aid In Brain Development During Childhood
April 9th, 2020 – Merrick, NY – The CDC has recently published new guidelines on how to manage stress brought on by the recent corona virus crisis. The new guidelines ask Americans to ” make time to unwind. Try to do some other activities you enjoy.” Due to social distancing measures across the globe, families are staying home for an indefinite period. Many parents are concerned with how to occupy all the extra free time, for themselves and their children.
The George Town Behavioral Health Institute has stated that art therapy is a great tool for helping children’s cognitive, emotional, and physical development. Art therapy has been shown to sharpen kids’ imagination, calms their minds, and positively impacts their own perception of their surroundings and emotional state. In addition, art therapy has been shown to improve children’s motor skills, dexterity control, hand-eye coordination, and muscle development.
