Celebrate the wonderful colors of spring with children by doing a fun home activity. This color activity for preschool involves filling the butterfly with beautiful colors.
Helping children strengthen their emotional skills is a parent's responsibility. This should be as important as teaching children to add and subtract or read and write. Teaching children to express their feelings may not be an easy task; however, there are many useful tools such as art to do so.
With art, children can express non-verbally everything they feel. Still, it also helps them awaken sensitivity, develop aesthetics, and appreciate beauty. Through art, children freely express what they don't like and what gives them pleasure; it helps them understand that there are good and bad feelings and that it is okay to feel both.
Art allows them to become more tolerant and understand that something beautiful for them may not be for other people. That means that it also strengthens social skills and healthy coexistence.
Developing artistic activities with children strengthens their emotional dimension. It helps them develop their motor skills, creativity, imagination, and problem-solving. That's why adults should prepare an environment where they feel calm, safe, and free to perform their artwork.
María Montessori said that drawing is not taught by drawing itself but by the capacity for expression that children gain through their creations. With their works of art, children make a representation of how they see the world.
