“Every Child is an Artist.” - said Pablo Picasso
So just hand him over the pallet and brush and “let him color his own world”.
My toddler just loves coloring. The moment he sights a brush, a sketch, a crayon.. only thing he insists to do is paint.
I know I need not mention the benefits of Art:
- Enhances imagination
- Improves hand-eye coordination
- Builds fine motor skills
- Promotes creativity
- Encourages Out-of-box thinking
- Gives them a different perspective of life, world, people
Here I am sharing some of our artworks that we did together.
1. Handprinting/ Footprinting
My toddler just loves to smear his hands and feet with colors.
2. Bubble wrap art
I didn’t know coloring with bubble wrap would be more fun than just bursting them. Details on how-to do bubble-wrap art on this page.
3. Paper plate Fish
Coloring and making shapes with paper plates is so much fun.
4. Clay-doh Craft
Clay craft gives strength to hand muscles and increases hand-eye coordination. Few more ideas of clay-doh craft here.
5. Vegetable art
Give your kid an okra with color on it and a paper till you finish your lunch. And it will be easy for both of you.
6. Cotton dabbing
This is so good for learning the boundaries and color recognition. Just dab the cotton with color and fill in the shapes.
Hope you and your little one would enjoy the world of colors and help your child explore and learn!!
