What is Kids Craft Therapy?
Kids Craft Therapy is a fun arts and craft activity for preschoolers where the child is supported by the experience and skills of a play therapist as the facilitator.
Chameleon’s founder and resident play therapist, Brenda Leemans, has developed an arts and crafts therapy programme that is based on play therapy techniques.
This is a project based programme where the focus is on the process, and not the outcome.
What is the purpose?
This programme has been developed with longterm benefits in mind. Kids Craft Therapy equips children with the necessary toolkit to be a healthy, happy, and confident individual. These fundamental tools form a solid and structured foundation for their social and emotional development throughout their lives. A toolkit that they will draw from for the rest of their lives
How does it work?
Sessions are 30 minutes in length and your child works on a new craft project where the focus is on the process, not the outcome. Each session has a unique theme and we use fun activities like stories, art, crafts, and games to work through the lesson.
Who is it for?
Pre-schoolers and young children between the ages of 3 and 6.
