Every child is a powerhouse of potential and latent talent, and the key to unlocking it is not just academic learning but overall and wholesome development. It is known that children who engage in arts and crafts grow up to be well-rounded performers.
Embroidery is one craft that enhances three key faculties in children: cognitive, creative, and motor. Children who engage in thread craft activities on a regular basis:
- Improve their decision-making, problem-solving, and lateral thinking abilities
- Hone their planning, organizing, time-management, and communication skills
- Develop social skills and self-confidence
The best part? The skills and abilities developed in children because of embroidery transfer to other areas of life, regardless of gender. Scientific studies have shown that children involved in thread craft are more likely to be academic achievers, to participate in extracurricular activities, to be avid readers, and to perform community service.
Introducing children in India to a whole range of amazing projects and activities in thread craft is Anchor Education Service. An initiative by Madura Coats Private Limited , it supports schools and teachers to encourage children’s creativity and enable their all-round development.
An integrated programme for school children by Anchor Education Service is Thread Magic.
