“You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have “
K.R.Mangalam , Paschim Vihar believes in learning by doing .A child learns better through creativity. Keeping this in mind virtual ‘Play with Clay’ activity for grade Nursery and KG students was organized during their online classes. Clay craft is a fun and interesting way to nurture child’s creativity, boost imagination, and to imbibe self-confidence.
The touch and feel of clay have a naturally relaxing quality. Teachers guided the students to make different objects related to academics with clay. They pounded, squeezed, rolled and blended the clay to make some unique and amazing objects like fish, rose, snowman, angry bird, watermelon, boat, butterfly etc. and showcased them virtually with pride. The little hands worked smoothly and efficiently to fulfill their heart’s desires and fantasies.
This outstanding sensory activity enhanced their gross and fine motor skills , eye-hand coordination, color recognition and helped to boost the self-confidence of the students. The finished product at hand was a treasure to cherish for the young ones. They experienced the feeling of accomplishment and satisfaction. The activity was indeed a great way to develop imagination and sparkle creativity to think out of the box……!!
