Unlock Creative of Your Child Instincts

Apr 10, 2008
Unleash the creative power of your child. The idea sounds simple but, in truth, it is as simple as it really sounds. It is just a matter of providing tools for one imagination to flourish and prosper.

A child when left alone to act on his own often spells disaster. But knowing how to direct his energy into something useful, fun, and purposeful is the key to discovering his potential. Toys in all shapes, colors, and materials abound in most households. But how do arts and craft materials differ from the rest?

Unlike most toys which come along with an instruction kit, arts and craft materials leave much room for the imagination of the kids to come into play.

During out of town trips, to go sightseeing or for an outing on the beach, bring along a standing easel complete with crayons, paints, markers, and whatever artist tools available. Parents will be amazed at the ability of child to capture whatever is seen by the naked eye and beyond.

Is not it true that no two creations are exactly alike? This is the beauty of art. Artists may look at the same scene but may interpret it differently. This is very much inevitable when it comes to kids artworks.

Give them a drawing pad or any piece of paper, they will doodle, draw and sketch. Through the skillful use of the brush and paint, watch them transform plain wooden boxes or ceramics into admirable works of art. They can make door signs, wall decors, and picture frames using the different materials available.

Girls are not to be left behind. Think of the necklaces, bracelets, and anklets that they can make from the uniquely shaped and colorful trinkets found in bead sets. Decorate their bags and wallets with these specialized hanging ornaments. And they will be the envy of the rest.

Imagine the giggles and fun as the tots use their hands to squeeze, mold, and form objects out of dough. Finger painting is also one activity that always elicits squeals and shrieks of laughter from the little ones. Expect them to paint not only on paper but also on each others faces and little noses.

It is in activities such as these, where parents will see the pleasure that emanates from the child being as they engage themselves in complete abandonment to their creation. Trust Melissa & Doug to come up with safe, fun and tested arts and craft materials. If parents find that the child exhibits a special talent in the arts, they might as well enhance this by enrolling him in formal classes.

The mood of the artist is also evident in the completed creations. Sometimes, as observers, parents not only see joy but also sadness in these art works. If a child often illustrates a very distracting image, may it be scary or gloomy, this could be a sign that something is disturbing him. By talking to him, you might release the stress and frustration that he is undergoing.

Discover potential of your child . Know his moods and interests. More often than not, it is in activities involving free play where he will reveal his inner thoughts and feelings. Let the arts and crafts be tools in unlocking his creative instincts.
