The Magic of Clay
The therapeutic benefits of working with clay are considerable, whether you are an adult or child, the simple act of squeezing the clay in your hands is calming. Manipulating the clay can be an outlet for individuals to physically convey their emotions and relieve symptoms of stress.
There is nothing quite like clay and children are naturally drawn to this tactile and responsive medium. Working with clay encompasses all five senses, promotes confidence, encourages self expression and develops problem solving skills.
Clay is malleable, it can become anything a child wants it to become. What they envisioned in their imagination comes to life with clay. Their work of art can become permanent or be rolled back and made into something different. The possibilities are endless and children enjoy this freedom to transform their creations.
