Tangle it Easter!

This is an #elsafreefriday for children to have a go at tangling (doodling). It is a fab activity to do and brings a real sense of mindfulness.

Benefits include:

  • Concentration and attention span – it is so easy to get completely engrossed in your design
  • Thinking skills – thinking what pattern to do next, what will look good!
  • Mindfulness – a sense of mindfulness and being completed absorbed in the activity
  • Relaxation – a true sense of relaxation as you are only thinking about your patterns
  • Hand eye co-ordination – speaks for itself, try it!
  • Self-esteem – creating something beautiful that looks amazing!
  • Stress relief – if you feel stressed give it a go. You will be amazed
  • Self soothing – it is such a soothing activity and if you feel upset or anxious it will make you feel better
  • Ok to make mistakes – your mistakes can be incorporated into your design
  • Problem solving – how can you incorporate your mistakes into your design?
  • Fine motor skills – making those tiny patterns
  • Nurturing creative abilities – allowing everyone to be creative
  • Expanding your imagination – let your imagination go and just create!
  • Creative expression – allows you to create your own design and express yourself
  • Great fun!
  • Simple to learn – each stroke of the pen or pencil is simple
  • No planned outcome – you don’t know yet how your design will end up.
