Art making is a wonderfully fun way for young children to tap into their imagination, deepen their creativity, and explore new materials, all while strengthening their fine motor skills and developing self-confidence. This book has all the tools and information needed to encourage your children's creativity through art. You will learn how to set up an art space, how to talk to children about their artwork, how to choose the best art supplies (without breaking the bank), how to repurpose and organize the piles of art created, and even how to use kids' art activities to soften everyday transitions. The kids' arts and crafts projects included here are accessible and developmentally appropriate for one- to eight-year-olds, and they are a far cry from the cookie-cutter crafts many of us did in school as kids. From bubble prints to musical chairs art, these kids' art activities allow children to explore art materials, techniques, and ideas as they grow more creative every day. With activities for downtimes, action art for releasing energy, and recipes for making your own art materials, this book is a guide for raising an artful family.|
