Children learn and develop in many different ways, and creative activities are known to benefit one’s growth and learning. Some of these benefits include neural development, motor and other essential skills.
According to Vygotsky’s theory, play is a vital part of early childhood as it promotes cognitive, social and emotional development in children, and at the same time, allows them to have the freedom to unleash their personality.
Following one’s toddler years, a kid would tend to be curious towards everything around them, may it be a cat in the bushes or even the everyday sun.
Therefore, learning through play satisfies a child’s curiosity, whilst tapping into his or her learning development. This serves as a valuable experience in upbringing.
“A child’s greatest achievements are possible in play, achievements that tomorrow will become her basic level of real action.” – Lev Vygotsky
Never underestimate the power of learning through play — children are naturally instinctive hands-on and sensory learners.
These activities also grant you with valuable quality time and bonding with your little one, additionally creating a beautiful memory to look back on.
Here at Trio Kids, we offer you and your little one an extensive range of activities that will spark your minds!

Art and craft activities provide an outlet for children to express their thoughts and creativity. These activities also serve to develop their motor skills when they use their tiny muscles, may it be painting or doodling.
Before improving their word vocabulary, children tend to use colours to differentiate various objects — for example, associating an apple with the colour red, and the colour green with grass. Therefore, exposing children to art and colours at a younger age will give them more natural opportunities to learn new words whilst having fun at the same time.
Finger painting is an easy and highly sought after tactile experience for children as it supports their senses of hearing, touch and smell. This creative hands-on activity additionally allows them to gain new knowledge about colours and shapes through the mixing of paint.
