Kids and art go hand in hand. But art supplies are of little use when they’re spread throughout the house and we have to round them up every time our kids want to create something. Grab those supplies and keep them within reach for your little artists with these tips and tricks from Pinterest.
MaryAnn Faubion Kohl, award-winning author, publisher and educational consultant, explains why it’s so important that our children have the opportunity to express themselves artistically. “Creating art expands a child’s ability to interact with the world around them and provides a new set of skills for self-expression and communication.”
The trick is to combine our desire create an environment that fosters creativity with our desire to keep our home from turning into one big art studio. This is where a dedicated area for arts and crafts comes in handy, as we can physically contain their supplies, but not stifle their creativity.
Most of us have art supplies stored in nearly every nook and cranny of the house. Creating a central hub for art supplies will ensure that your kids can unleash their creativity whenever they’re feeling artistic.
