Kids love art! Whether they are colouring in their colouring book, making a collage, drawing with sidewalk chalk, or getting messy with finger paints, there’s nothing that makes children happier than creating their own art.
The benefits of preschool art activity for kids go way beyond having fun. Most nursery schools in Wimbledon share the belief that the process of creating art helps development in so many ways, including problem-solving, improved motor skills, imagination, and more!
