3 Aspects of lessons three components that each lesson will consist of



Art helps children develop mentally, socially and emotionally. It also improves the child’s ability to analyze and solve problems. The value of art is in the process and not so much in the final product. They learn colors, the basics of mathematics, to experiment with different materials and improve fine motor skills and coordination.

Children feel good while they are creating and this boosts self-confidence. Craft Heroes will help children invent new ways of thinking, which extends beyond the lessons.


The most important skill your child can develop by doing drama is confidence in themselves.  The drama aspect of the Craft Heroes lessons will nurture spontaneity and improve the ability to think on your feet.


Life skills

Children need to learn life skills that will enable them to become successful adults. In Craft Heroes the aim is to give the children the opportunity to practice these skills while being creative. They will feel more competent especially when interacting with friends. While participating in activities they explore and experience new sensations.
