How Hands-On Activities Promote Creativity 

Hands-on activities are not only fun for kids, but they also play a role in promoting creativity and developing fine motor skills. When kids do hands-on activities, they can explore their imagination, think outside the box, and problem-solve in a fun and creative way. They can use their senses to change up objects and experiment with different materials, and this helps them make connections between what they see and what they feel. 

Kids also get some help with their fine motor skills when cutting with scissors and sorting items.
