The Big Draw is a literacy charity which promotes the
universal language of drawing as a tool for learning and expression; since The
Big Draw Festival was launched in 2000 it has helped 4 million people get into drawing
as a form of expression. Beginning on 1st October The Big Draw
festival encourages people all around the world to get drawing! Craft
activities are extremely beneficial for children and adults alike; they help to
foster a number of skills such as communication, listening, attention and
imagination. It has been proven that craft-based activities also have the
ability to enhance mental health and fine motor skills alongside helping
children learn to identify shapes, colour and texture.
There are various ways you can encourage children to
incorporate arts and crafts into their lives, even if you don’t have the space
to have an entire room dedicated to arts and crafts there are plenty of ways
you can give them a crafty corner in their bedroom.
Anyone who is into arts and crafts will know that you need
plenty of storage to keep all your stationary neat and tidy. Cupboards are a
great idea for storing arts and crafts materials as you can shut the door to
hide any disarray without having to worry. Cubed storage units are also a great
solution as you have options to have items on display or hidden away in drawers
depending on your preference.
A desk is a necessity for anyone who is into their arts and
crafts; after all, you do need the space to work. Having a desk dedicated to
crafts is ideal as it creates a designated area; making sure nothing spills
over into the rest of the bedroom as this could cause a lot of mess. It can
also help children to learn
good study habits if they have a designated space to do work of any kind.
Pegboard walls are useful for so many things and they look amazing!
It is a great way to not only include some wall storage, but it can also be a
place for children to let their imagination run wild and really be creative
with what they hang on there. You can design your pegboard wall however you
please; even hanging your creations on there. They are incredibly stylish,
modern and versatile as you can swap and change them as and when you please.
As with pegboard walls, shelving is great as it doesn’t take
up floor space; only wall space. You can place as many shelves as you please
above a desk to act as handy storage. You can use them to store utensils in
jars or even frame works of art to display on them.
As the month of October is dedicated to the Big Draw
Festival why not use it as the perfect opportunity to get your family into arts
and crafts and see what you can create together?
