Create and Talk!

June 05, 2018

Encourage your child to create and imagine at home! Focus on the process of creating rather than the final product by talking, asking questions, and telling stories while your child creates their own masterpiece.

There are lots of simple art activities you and your child can do together such as:

-Using play dough to make shapes and patterns
-Finger paint on cardboard or newspaper
-Find materials in nature to building something
-Draw on paper, boxes or outside in the dirt or sand

Prompt your child to tell you about what they are creating, ask them about the colors they used or the different shapes or patterns they have made.  These conversations are a great way you can help your child express themselves and lay the foundation for a lifetime of creativity!
