TIP: Early Child development and learning centres around a theory called constructivism by a world renowned child development expert Jean Piaget. He believed that children learn best by building upon their prior knowledge. By building on your child's previous learnt knowledge, your child will form a solid foundation if you start slowly, and build a materials library bank of knowledge. For e.g. most children know that you can draw on paper, but teach them other crafts that can be done with paper to extend their knowledge of what paper can do. By building children's library of memories and thus confidence in working with paper, children will be able to recall past experiences and explore in new creative ways in the future. Think: collage, scrapbooking, 3D cubes, paper chains, making recycled paper, scrunching paper or cutting it to build shapes, animals or people.
