Personality comes with us from the moment we are born. It defines us and separates us from the rest of the people. However, it doesn't mean we continue having the same personality during our lifetime.
Through our experiences and knowledge, we gradually shape our nature. That's why we must help children in their personality development process. That will allow them to be happier people.
When children develop a healthy and mature personality, they can make their own decisions; they aren't influenced, and they will have healthy self-esteem. Personality begins to develop when boys and girls are aware of their own selves.
Several concepts are very important for children's development, such as their self-image and what they think about others, the different points of view people will have, their feelings about those opinions, and some other experiences.
Montessori's methodology understands that a child is full of qualities, liking, and opinions that lead his/her own learning process. However, the adult in charge of guiding the child to improve his/her intelligence and skills should promote healthy personality development. A child that properly develops all his/her abilities will be a useful person to society.
That's why the following Christmas tree craft activity is focused on Montessori's learning method. With it,we look forward to helping children develop and strengthen their personalities. It also seeks to enforce them to work independently, their accuracy in hand and finger moving, and their ability to interact with their peers.
