It also provides various opportunities and encouragement to children to portray their ideas effectively through art. These skills help children to represent themselves and understand their hidden interests, skills and ideas for further development.

Motor skills are associated with muscle activity. This forms a critical aspect for cognitive years and includes six most important components:

  • Agility
