I never thought art was very important. However, now that I’m older I see many of the most successful people have advanced artistic and creative abilities. This doesn’t mean that they are master artists, but they have an eye for aesthetic qualities that make a good product or system.
That’s why it is wise to get kids involved in art at an early age. It really boosts their creative abilities, has them focus on details, and gets them to plan ahead. Sometimes, it really is about the process not the product, but eventually we want are children to be able to create what their hearts desire. That is why experimenting with all sorts of creative art activities is so important and fun! Check out these 9 art activities for inspiration!

You’re so right that art is useful for more than “just art.” Developing an artistic eye for systems and products is part of it. Exercising creativity is another! Our daughters were naturally drawn to art; we found our son didn’t really find his artistic expression until he found pixel art on the computer. (Yes, that does seem to fit the stereotypes, but my husband/his dad does both art both with a pencil and with the computer. It’s not like our son didn’t have a role model – it’s just what appealed to him!) There are some great computer art programs for younger kids, but my kids are way past that now and I don’t know the current ones.

art packs for kids says
Sand and water play tables are commonly found in preschools because they are so beneficial for children learning to explore, problem-solve and use their imaginations. Whether you have a sand and water table at home for your child, you can engage you child in a variety of activities involving sand and water, which will help foster exploration and learning.
