hobbies and art for children

Tips for creative art with kids


Parents that regularly do hobby and craft projects with their kids, tend to be blessed with creative children.  So is it just a genetic thing? Are the parents special, or is it just a result of routinely doing more and more hands-on projects?

Let’s put it this way: what sounds like more of a personality-developing activity: passively watch TV cartoons.. or make a decorative wall mural together with your parents? I’ll choose doing more creative projects and art with kids anytime. I rate “creativity” as a principal quality in life that leads to harmony and self-assured, stable character.

The Artful Parent shown here has over 60 projects that you can do together with children from 1 to 8 years old.

Doing art and crafts with the youngest kids is a fun and stimulating way to spark an interest in learning. It seems like a straight-forward formula, so why doesn’t it always work?

My tip to increase success rate:

Let the kids lead sometimes. It might teach you something too! 😉
