  • Josiah Okeke


Creativity is induced right from the formative years of young   people, who are taught to work with their hands and brains. Arts and crafts, which offer children opportunities for progressive acquisition of skills in mental and motor activities, as well as the cognitive, help to lay the solid foundation for technological development.   Developing country like Nigeria needs to fully adopt this culture that would help to sensitize the children’s creative endowment. Arts and crafts are, therefore, examined in this paper as foundation on which the technology of any nation is built, starting from the life of school
