What is my child learning?

-Creativy + imagination + cognitive skills (as they reveal their sceneries, kids can think, predict and wonder about what it can be)

-Small + fine motor skills (holding on to the paint brush with pointer finger and thumb)

-Concentrated play (having a single activity lined up for the child helps them stay focused and put all their attention towards one activity)
