I love sushi! Do you?

Oh Great! They having Japanese themed Arts & Crafts and it's happening ALL DAY from 12pm to 6pm! I love Arts & Crafts so much! Do you know the benefits of Arts & Crafts?
5 Benefits of Arts and Crafts:
1. Bilateral Coordination
Crafts such as coloring, drawing, cutting, all require your child to use both of their hands together. This skill is important in other areas including writing, tying shoes, typing and much more!
2. Fine Motor Coordination
In order to draw shapes, cut patterns, and write, your child is required to use their fine motor coordination. These skills similarly translate to other areas of their lives including dressing and eating.
3. Self Regulation
Crafts that require drying require waiting! This is a great lesson for your child to demonstrate self control and patience. Also, things might not go exactly as we hoped! Crafts are a great way to promote flexibility in your child. There is no right or wrong way in exploring one’s own creativity!
4. Self-esteem Booster
Although we want to challenge our kids, it is also important to initially choose arts and crafts that are at your child’s skill level. Completing the crafts successfully will give them a great sense of accomplishment and pride. As you and your child begin to explore more crafts, you can add in more and more challenges.
5.Bonding and Fun
Your kids will love spending time with you and creating something together!
