The kits are based on traditional crafts from all over the world, with a contemporary bent so as to make them relevant for the young generation.
Each kit has been carefully designed to develop and enhance hand skills, design aesthetics, precision and concentration among children.
While crafting, the kids also experience a sense of achievement, as they see their kit turn into a creative, functional and utility product.
After dabbling with a few crafts, one can then combine two or more of the skills to create an original and value-added creation.Unlike arts, creativity cannot be taught it can only be expressed through activities. Active Hands also organizes workshops on craft and science as an all year round activity, not just for recreation but also for skill development. Handling different materials like paper, fabric, wood, clay/ dough, flowers, chocolate, etc. enhances the tactile capabilities and technical learning.
Both creativity and play require imagination, insight, problem solving, divergent thinking, the ability to experience emotion and to make choices.Organizing interactive craft-making parties can add a whole lot of meaning to the occasion and to the gifting culture.
