Make children love healthy food by introducing them to different fruits and vegetables in a fun way. Show them the happy carrot in this creative and fun painting crafts for kids.
Art is a different form of language in which children can express their inner world with complete freedom. They have free expression and therefore allow them to be what they want to be, both in the present and future.
Art is also a way of living and feeling life. Children develop imagination, creativity, and innovation by creating different things with various materials that adults would not have thought to do.
Adults must provide children with spaces where they can develop these activities. We can have a place at home to use different types of materials such as card stock, paints, colors, markers, clay, plasticine, the paper of different colors, glitter, stickers, among many others.
For the little ones, we can start by introducing these materials little by little. It is necessary to be present to guide them, but without interfering in their way of expressing art.
As they grow, we introduce other materials that they can use according to their age. In this way, they can create whatever is in their imagination.
Art exercises allow children to develop their intellectual abilities, stimulating both sides of the brain. They can express their emotions and feelings, fears, anxieties, and preferences.
In this way, their confidence is increased. This secure feeling allows them to express themselves and communicate with other people. They also become more sensitive, which makes them better human beings.
