Playing with clay can be a fun and educational activity for young children. It can help develop their large and small muscles, improving dexterity and eye-hand coordination. It also helps build both gross and fine motor skills, including the small muscles in hands and fingers.
This helps with dexterity and is beneficial for children colouring, cutting, and writing in a school setting. Working with clay is a positive way to express emotions, a good stress-reliever and, since it’s generally an unhurried activity, also a calming pastime for kids.
It extends attention span as it is so different from other mediums like drawing that children are naturally drawn to experiment with this fun material.

Each class decided to select a different item and then decorated it by spreading clay on it.
This is a weekly project done by the Kindergarten Teachers and Students in collaboration with the Upper School Design Club
