Foster Imagination and Creativity Through Creative Arts

Look no further than the Original POCET™ for a plethora of Creative Arts activities to inspire, motivate and engage young children. Preschool Activity QuickSource® reminds us that "Creative Arts support all areas of child development and foster children's imagination and creativity. By painting a colorful picture, singing a song, dancing, and role-playing with their friends, children learn to express their thoughts, ideas, and feelings in new and creative ways." And, several studies suggest that art promotes social and emotional development, cognitive development, critical thinking/problem solving skills, spatial relationships, and a sense of independence.

So draw, sing, or dance today - and bring out the artist in your child!

Don't forget to browse companion products correlated specifically to the Creative Arts developmental guideline for preschoolers.
