How do you encourage a creative, artistic spirit in your baby, toddler or young child?
we have 1 year old twins and a 5 year old son.
For all three we are always doing fun little crafts...like this year for Madi Gras my older son made a awesome Madi Gras mask!!
For our older son we are always having him make up stories, songs (both singing and with the piano) He also really enjoys drawing, so I have him draw a picture of ANYTHING, then he makes up a story to go with his drawing! It's so much fun!
The twins are always wanting to do what big brother is doing:) So I always encourage them to color...without eating the crayons:) I have always sung to them and recently they have started singing...all the time! We are a musical family so every evening we put on music and just dance!!
Music, dancing, drawing, and making up stories are the way to go for my little one:)
