Nur­tur­ing cre­ativ­ity and imag­i­na­tion

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - PARENTING -

Sil­i­cone is an ac­tive in­gre­di­ent used in many hair care prod­uct for decades. It pro­vides short-term smooth­ing ef­fect by coat­ing the hair with some­thing slip­pery. Stud­ies show that most sil­i­cones are non-wa­ter-sol­u­ble and they are dif­fi­cult to wash out.

even­tu­ally, it builds up and makes hair greasy and prone to break­ing. Un­like other commercial con­di­tion­ers, MooGoo uses nat­u­ral scalp re­pair in­gre­di­ents such as milk protein, aloe vera and al­lan­toin (com­frey root ex­tract) to con­di­tion the scalp and seal in mois­ture in the hair. It can even be mas­saged to the scalp to re­lieve ir­ri­ta­tion and itch­i­ness.

Scalp cream

Fun­gal-based and yeast-based skin con­di­tions of­ten oc­cur on oily parts of the body such as the scalp, hair­line or face ar­eas.

the scalp cream is a mois­turiser that helps to con­trol the mi­croflora of the skin and re­turns the skin to a healthy con­di­tion by in­cor­po­rat­ing nat­u­ral mois­tur­is­ing el­e­ments that are non­ir­ri­tat­ing. Like all MooGoo creams, scalp cream can be used on the head and body. Apart from hair care, MooGoo also de­vel­oped a com­plete range of nat­u­ral skin care prod­ucts for people with skin prob­lems.

“Fun, in­ter­ac­tive, artis­tic ex­er­cises that pro­mote cre­ativ­ity and in­volve brain-storm­ing can help chil­dren suc­ceed in the class­room,” says da Vinci Cre­ative Kids gen­eral man­ager tan Chin Wee.

re­search shows that most people have a dom­i­nant side of the brain, where the left­hemi­sphere gov­erns logic, anal­y­sis and spa­tial rea­son­ing, while the right side gov­erns cre­ativ­ity and emo­tion.

Cre­at­ing art ex­pands chil­dren’s abil­ity to in­ter­act with the world around them, and pro­vides a new set of skills for self-ex­pres­sion and com­mu­ni­ca­tion.

da Vinci Cre­ative Kids of­fers cre­ative art and craft pro­grammes for chil­dren aged four and above. It has a struc­tured syl­labus that en­cour­ages stu­dents to fully utilise their cre­ativ­ity and pro­motes imag­i­na­tion. these pro­grammes pro­vide a plat­form for the young stu­dents to ex­er­cise their right brain af­ter a day of left-brain school aca­demics.

the Lit­tle da Vinci Cre­ative Pro­gramme for chil­dren aged four and five has un­der­gone thor­ough re­search and de­vel­op­ment with the ob­jec­tive of teach­ing young chil­dren to not only cre­ate great art­works but also de­velop self-con­fi­dence, com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills and prob­lem-solv­ing skills.

When chil­dren draw a pic­ture, paint a por­trait, or ex­plore craft-mak­ing, they ac­tu­ally be­gin to com­mu­ni­cate and ex­press them­selves vis­ually. With young chil­dren ex­plor­ing art ideas, they are test­ing pos­si­bil­i­ties and work­ing through chal­lenges, much like a sci­en­tist who ex­per­i­ments and finds so­lu­tions.

the Lit­tle da Vinci Cre­ative Pro­gramme uses a se­ries of cre­ativ­ity-em­pow­er­ing com­po­nents that cen­tres on the con­cept of In­te­grated eye-Mind-hand de­vel­op­ment. this ap­proach in­cludes the Flash An­i­ma­tion Vis­ual Learn­ing method, a proven way to im­prove men­tal ca­pac­ity and the un­der­stand­ing of artis­tic prin­ci­ples. It also em­ploys an In­te­grated “Learn & Ap­ply” Work­book to guide chil­dren in draw­ing and colour­ing Craft Ac­tiv­i­ties, which will en­hance chil­dren’s ob­ser­va­tion, fine mo­tor skills and hand-eye co­or­di­na­tion. Fur­ther­more, Cre­ative Play time dur­ing the lessons en­ables chil­dren to cre­ate bet­ter phys­i­cal de­vel­op­ment and de­velop bet­ter so­cial skills.

Be­sides the Lit­tle da Vinci pro­gramme, da Vinci Cre­ative Kids also of­fers other ex­cit­ing pro­grammes such as Ju­nior da Vinci Cre­ative Kids Art (five to 11 years old), Intermediate da Vinci Kids Art (seven to 12 years old), Ad­vanced da Vinci Art (13 to 15 years old) and more.
