In a world where everyone is increasingly used to working with electronic devices, at Luna de Papel they take a step back and focus on practical life skills that teach an appreciation for handcrafts. Children today are used to instant gratification, this can stifle the ability to strive for longer term goals. Handcrafts take commitment but they teach children that they can achieve great things if they take them one step at a time. At Luna de Papel, they teach children how to “create”. When they learn to create they learn that they can control their environment and that builds a tremendous amount of self-esteem. Their goal is to build self-esteem through self-expression that is more approachable, authentic and sustainable than simple art.
