Art and Craft for Children with Special Needs
Your special needs child can learn many things through art and craft. It can help develop better hand-eye coordination, improve fine and gross motor skills, and learn about shapes and colours.
It is also simply fun!
Bond with your child by taking on art projects together.
Make a Ring Toss Game.
Point out the names of colours as you paint together. Your child will experience a sense of satisfaction playing with something he has made.
Tossing the ring helps improve kinesthetic skills.
- Cut circular holes in some paper plates and have fun painting them together.
- Create a stand using the cardboard tube from cling wrap or kitchen paper towel roll.
- You’re done!
Enjoy tossing the rings you’ve make into the stand.
