Skills development

PepMelon products help to develop fine motor skill, creativity, solution-focused thinking, visual and social skills.

Fine Motor Skill

Fine Motor skill

Fine motor skills are involved in smaller movements, the coordination of small muscles —usually involving the synchronization of hands and fingers—with the eyes.

They involve smaller actions such as picking up objects between the thumb and finger, writing carefully, and even blinking. The result: The 4-year-old child will hold the crayon between his finger and thumb, 1 year later the child will be able to make smaller and more precise movements. At 6, your child should be able to use both hands together.

With PepMelon Jumbo Box Craft Kit children will have fun, and will be able to do art and craft activities like cutting and gluing pompoms and EVA foams, building characters, and creating masks. These will all develop their creativity and self-esteem, because the Craft Kit offers activities that the child will be successful with!

Creativity

Creativity

Creativity is the freest form of self-expression. There is nothing more satisfying and fulfilling for children than to be able to express themselves openly and without criticism. The ability to be inventive, to create something from personal feelings and experiences, can reflect and nurture children's emotional health.

Creative arts engage children across all domains—cognitive, language, social, emotional, and physical.

PepMelon Jumbo Box Craft Kit helps to improve creativity with fine motor skills, and offer self-esteem, reach success with the new character, mask or gift which the child has made by himself. 

Thinking

Thinking

Solution-Based Thinking or Solution-Focused Thinking involves evaluating a current problem or situation and determining a reasonable, practical plan to attack that problem or situation.

By focusing on the positive resources and skills, a solution-focused approach can enhance the workplace, school, home, or community experience for all members of that environment.

Solution-focused thinking in education can be applied to all aspects of school life - from promoting and reinforcing positive behaviour, addressing bullying issues, to the running of effective meetings.

PepMelon Jumbo Box Craft Kit offer endless opportunities to transform ideas and imaginations into reality. Of course, sometimes, when a child imagines a story or character, it could be hard to find the best way to create it. This colourful box offers a variety of multi-coloured entertainment while concentrating on focused attention and complex, planned solution-based thinking.

Visual Skill

Visual

Good visual perceptual skills are important for many everyday skills such as reading, writing, completing puzzles, cutting, drawing, completing maths problems, dressing, finding your sock on the bedroom floor, as well as many other skills. Without the ability to complete these everyday tasks, a child’s self-esteem can suffer and their academic and play performance is compromised.

From 3 years of age children are refining their visual motor skills. This is demonstrated by their ability to colour within the lines, cut between lines and on a broad line, and cutting out simple outline pictures.

PepMelon Jumbo Box Craft Kit helps in these areas as well: 

  • Understanding the relationships of objects within the environment. 
  • The ability to determine differences or similarities in objects based on size, color, shape, etc. 
  • Sensory Processing or Visual Attention: The ability to focus on important visual information and filter out unimportant background information.

The box offers a great opportunity to learn harmony with between colours, and replicates the animals according to colour and shape. 

Social Skill

Social skills

Social skills are ways of dealing with others, creating healthy and positive interactions. Children who have social skills can communicate clearly, calmly, and respectfully. They show consideration for the feelings and interests of their peers.

In general, kids will have developed certain social skills and social cues by these ages:
3- to 4-year-olds: are able to take turns when playing games. 5-year-olds: are able to show more cooperation with children, use direct requests (like "Stop").6-year-olds: are able to please their friends, say "I'm sorry," "Please," and "Thank you," understand bad words and potty language, are more strategic in bargaining, play competitive games, and understand fair play and good sportsmanship. Later they are able to empathize with others (like crying at sad things), are able to share, use posture and gestures, wait for turns and are better losers and less likely to place blame.

After children start to learn these skills, they have to practice too. PepMelon Jumbo Box Craft Kit gives a great opportunity, to practice a proper way to start a conversation, get someone's attention, or join a group of kids who are already playing together.
