Arts and crafts have been used by teachers for their students to not only teach valuable lessons but to also allow the students to have fun and take pride in their work. Arts and crafts include everything from finger painting to complex experiments and everything in between. These types of projects get the students involved in learning without them even realizing it. The students have fun, interact with each other, take pride in their work, and enjoy showing off what they've completed. Teachers use these projects to teach following directions, patience, cooperation, creativity, critical thinking, and the students can even improve fine motor functions.
