10 Ways: How Clay Reduces Screen Time
Education Singapore: Studies have shown that cutting down on screen time for your little ones has a whole range of benefits, including better sleep patterns and more time to play and be active. Read on for 10 compelling ways on how our clay classes can help you and your children reduce screen time:
1. Earthy medium
Our little ones hardly get to go outside all day and play in nature. The clay we use in our Education Singapore: NeuroCeramics® classes is made from real, natural clay, and is the perfect way to get your children to feel and play with an earthy medium.
2. Highly sensorial
Clay different from sensorial platforms like play-doh, plasticine or other similar mouldable art forms, which are uni-dimensional. It has the highest touch-to-brain activity and is an ideal medium to use to keep your little ones off the screens.
3. Highly engaging
Clay engages the brain like no other medium. It is highly tactile and multifaceted. This soft, malleable medium is a great platform to enhance learning in your children. That's why we use clay!
4. Creating from scratch
Clay can be shaped and manipulated, and is a great way to get your little ones to express themselves and their surroundings. Have your little ones join our classes, and see all the wonders and insights you can get about them when they create something beautiful out of nothing.
Clay is extremely versatile. And you can learn anything under the sun using this fun medium - from the life cycle of animals, to the universe, to cuisines around the world.
6. Tool for the imagination
Clay increases your children's ability to focus. Their concentration levels are boosted as they focus on building their masterpiece with their hands. Hand building techniques like rolling, pinching and blending improves coordination and fine motor skills.
8. Builds creativity
Clay is the perfect medium to get your little ones interested in their surroundings. It is also a great way for some creative story telling!
Clay has been used regularly in many art therapy programmes. It is a natural element and has a grounding effect. It is malleable and moves as instructed by your children's hands. Participating our NeuroCeramics® classes is therapeutic and calming. Use this fun medium as a healthy, fun alternative to keeping your children engaged and occupied.
10. Super fun!
The last and most compelling reason why clay keeps your little ones off the screens! It's fun, fun and fun!
