Introduction

Art and craft is a subject in which all children can take part. Even the smallest child enjoys using bright colours, and sticking things together. This book is a collection of ideas for teaching art and craft to any child. It was written for children with learning difficulties in mind, but it would be equally applicable for children aged 3 - 9 years old.

Most of these activities can be completed within ten minutes, so they are ideal for children with limited ability and short attention spans. It is very helpful to both child and teacher if the teacher demonstrates what she/he wants the child to do (as well as telling them) before starting the activity. This makes it much easier for the child to understand.
