Well, the first answer is: because it's fun! Kids love creating and exploring.​ It is very inspiring to see how they tend to retell stories while painting and drawing, and are not limited on focusing too much on how the picture will turn out in the end.

 

"It's the process, not the product."​

 

Not only is it fun and exciting, it supports the development in many different ways, by building up: 

 

  • Confidence

  • Communication skills

  • Self-expression

  • Imagination and creativity

  • Fine and gross motor skills

  • Problem solving skills

  • Concentration, focused attention
