Your imagination is free. Special times with your children are priceless. Sometimes you pay for professional artists, but the impressions they leave on children can last a lifetime.
Children are born highly creative and then early years experiences can shape our brains: to be more creative, or less so. 75% of a child’s brain cell connections are formed at age 0-3, influencing the rest of their lives.
Creative arts can build confidence, develop rounded personalities, unlock human qualities like expression, support development in language, maths and other areas, and help children to engage with education and learning.
