Hi girls ! Are you looking for ideas to keep your children aged 8 to 12 busy with fun and creative activities? Well, you’ve come to the right place! In this article, I will present 8 manual activities that will allow your children to develop their imagination, their fine motor skills and have a good time.
You know, children at this age are often full of energy and need to express themselves in a playful way. This is why it is important to offer them activities that stimulate their creativity. One of my favorite tricks is to create an artistic corner at home with various materials: paper, colored pencils, paint, glitter, markers, etc. Let them explore and experiment freely by creating drawings, collages or even sculptures. This will help them develop their self-confidence and express their individuality.
Now let me share my personal experience with you. I recently hosted a jewelry making workshop with my 10 year old niece, and we had an amazing time together. We used colorful beads, threads and clasps to create unique bracelets and necklaces. Not only was this a great opportunity to develop her hand-eye coordination, but it also allowed her to show off her creativity by choosing the combinations of colors and shapes she liked best. It was truly gratifying to see how proud she was of her designs and the attention she received when she showed them to family and friends.
I hope these 8 manual activities will inspire you and help you provide your children with fun and learning times. Remember to give them the freedom to explore and express their creativity. Have fun and enjoy these precious moments with your children!
