Posted on 12-03-2014

Getting creative with your child can be great fun for both parent and child. Not only is it fun, but art is an essential part of every child’s development. These activities aid not only in cognitive development, but also in the development of fine motor skills. These activities are also important for developing imagination and creativity. Here are a few art activities recommended by child care experts.

Potato stamps

Potato stamps are a good way for your child to express creativity. Simply cut out a few interesting shapes from small raw potatoes, and have your child dip them in a bit of safe finger paint and apply the painted shapes to paper.

Chalk drawing

Using some colored chalk, take your child outside to draw on the driveway or the sidewalk. Chalk is easy to remove from any surface, is inexpensive and is engaging for young children. Your child can create unique pictures, and afterwards you can simply wash them away with a splash of water.

Crayons

Non-toxic crayons are probably the first thing that most parents give to young children. Show your child how to work with crayons and blank paper, but be sure to supervise, especially with very young children who might want to put them in their mouths. Once your child begins to learn how to color, you can offer some coloring books for more learning and fun.
