A handmade gift for Christmas “White dove”

Children at any age usually have a great creative interest. For children in kindergarten age creativity and learning with an adult are very important.
Crafts help promote motor skills, endurance, creativity, imagination and cover a broad range of skills and interests. Manipulating with small objects, such as stones, seeds, beads or buttons, holding and picking them up, and planning out the further action, helps to encourage the development of fine motor skills.
The development of fine motor skills is very important for children at the age of 2-3 years. This is closely connected with the development of speech. The human brain centers responsible for speech and movement of the fingers are very close to each other. While sculpting the appropriate parts of brain are activated and they stimulate the nearest areas responsible for speech.

A candle burns longer

If you burn a candle often, here are some tricks that will make the candles last nearly twice as long.

  • Candles will burn 2 times longer, if you place them in the freezer for a day before using them.
  • Lightly rub the candle with a piece of soap.
  • Wrap a candle in a foil. It will make the candle burn longer. Such a candle works as a tea-light, which is very efficient, because melting wax burns up completely.
