CHILDREN ENHANCED THEIR MOTOR SKILLS THROUGH CLAY MODELLING ACTIVITY

Clay Modelling is an activity that helps in the development of pre-primary and primary students in several ways. It nurtures a child’s creativity, boosts imagination, and imbibes self-confidence. The touch and feel of clay have a naturally relaxing quality. By pressing, squeezing, poking, and reshaping the clay into different shapes, improves a child’s motor skills. The student’s problem-solving skills can be explored when he decides how far they can shape the clay before it breaks, de-shapes, and falls.
To create something from scratch is indeed to be proud of and empowering. Playing and modelling with clay helps the child to develop a sense of control. After the child is done with shaping the clay, he/she will feel accomplished. Thus, through Clay Modelling, a child can bring imagination to life.
