Crafty Kids

Arts, crafts and experiments, a creative group program

Designed for children 5-10 years with social learning difficulties, developmental delay or disability that are high functioning. This program has been developed by our allied health therapists and combines evidence-based strategies with clever crafty activities. This program has children working collaboratively on one big project across the four days, where they plan, initiate decisions, be creative, read and listen to instructions, problem solve and develop fine motor skills. This program encourages curiosity as children paint, draw, collage, photograph, weave, build and more.

What we’ll work on

  • Creativity – in coming up with a group name, innovative and imaginative thinking
  • Collaboration – working and bonding as a team to achieve a shared goal
  • Problem solving – working through differences and coming up with solutions
  • Social skills – helping your child make friends, greet others, develop sharing skills
  • Sensory – explore different sensory stimulants with colours, textures, fabrics, scents
  • Maintaining attention – staying focused on the main project
  • Communication and literacy skills – expanding vocabulary around social and emotional development, increasing literacy skills and language development through peer activities
  • Fine motor skills – developing hand and finger strength, grasping and cutting with scissors, manipulating small items, accuracy drawing and writing
