I ran across this amazing word cloud that basically depicts another one of my PASSIONS with kiddos! I LOVE ART! And I think a childhood without exploring all manner of artistic medium and ideas is bleak indeed. To give credit where credit it absolutely due, I found this word cloud on Tinker Lab’s website this morning and had to share and give it props! Whether a mom or childcare provider, involved relative or friend, having a setup with all of these at hand (or many of them) is sure to provide hours of fun at a moments notice!
I added a few things- and found a few suggestions to the list as well…
*wheels of all sorts
Basically, the list is endless! There are SO many creative ways to play and make art! Thinking outside of the box is part of what makes art so darn fun, rewarding and perfect for kids!!!
~ Art stimulates both sides of the brain and develops hand eye coordination!
~Art is also a fun way to teach analysis to young minds- creating something out of nothing, looking at the strengths and weaknesses, planning strategies to reach desired outcome- all while having fun!
