Messy Beans

For young children to encourage their imagination and to get creative, and best of all to get messy. Classes include drawing, painting, cutting, pasting, modelling and making.

Intellectual Benefits
Even at a young age, creative activities help to develop basic maths skills such as geometry (size and shape), measuring, and sorting. There is also a great deal of problem solving and concentration which happens as children learn to take what is in their head, and put it onto paper.

Physical Benefits
Painting, drawing, cutting and pasting all help to develop fine motors skills in young children, which in turn helps them to be writing-ready as they near school age.

Emotional and Social Benefits
It’s no secret that creative activities provide a positive outlet for children (and adults) to express their emotions, and this starts at a very young age.

As children get older, arts and crafts can provide a safe and positive way for children to socialize with others. Instead of just ‘hanging out’, children can get together to make and create.

Wednesdays 11.15am – 12.15pm, children 2-5 yrs.
