“The realist sees reality as concrete. The optimist sees reality as clay”
Clay play is a multi-sensory hobby: touch, sight, smell—and even sound. It also helps improve eye/hand coordination and build both gross and fine motor skills, including the small muscles in hands and fingers. Clay stimulates curiosity, motivates them to solve the problem and ultimately leads them to three-dimensional art.
Pre-Primary wing of Gajera International School, Utran conducted clay modelling activity on 18th July 2022. Students participated with a lot of gaiety and enthusiasm.
The tactile hands on nature of clay made children get engrossed while allowing for a high degree of creativity. Under the guidance and direction of their teachers; our little ones came up with their own ideas and stunning creations. Playing and crafting with clay is the favourite activity of kids as they learn basic shapes, techniques and gains experience of moulding.
This outstanding sensory activity enhanced dexterity, gross and fine motor skills and helped to boost the self-confidence of the students. It promoted problem solving skills as they experimented with the building techniques and adapted to changes along the way.
It was a great way to develop imagination and sparkles creativity to think out of the box……!!
