Encouraging your children to express themselves through art will bring many benefits. Drawing and painting will help to develop their fine motor coordination and observational skills. Because they are creating something concrete that they can keep, children’s art projects are very rewarding and can help them to practise sitting still and concentrating for longer periods of time. Kids’ art assignments also provide valuable opportunities for family time and interaction.
If you would like to give your children an abiding interest in arts and crafts, it’s important to offer them a wide age of art materials and mediums. Experiment with different colouring pencils, colouring pens and paints. Stamps and stencils will also help them to create satisfying results. They’ll be thrilled with the results if they’re given the chance to use porcelain paint pens or glass paints, or to experiment with different types of paper or fabric painting.
