Unicorn Craft Ideas Can Be Fun
At the moment Unicorns are everywhere and I think the reason people love Unicorns so much is because they allow us to use our imagination and express our creativity.
At school I learnt the importance of using the creative side of our brain. It can really help with creative development and building the imagination. I think this is the perfect craft for doing just that!
Teaching young children to use their imagination is so important and helps with the following:
- Imagination enhances problem solving skills
- Imagination helps preserve the memory
- Imagination helps with social interaction
- Imagination helps foster curiosity
- Imagination helps develop self confidence
