Encouraging your children to create and express themselves opens up their imagination to endless possibilities. Painting, coloring, sculpting, help calm nerves and increase concentration. The best art is from my very young children because it is unbridled and free.

I’m so glad! Thank you for stopping by Joyce!
I can’t find the puffy paints on Amazon. Do you know if they stain skin? I’m interested…thanks for all the ideas!
Hi Kelly, you should be able to click on the picture and find them, but you might have to buy them from Learning Resources. They don’t stain skin if you wash hands right after. Thanks!

Thanks for the great list that can help launch the artistic side of our kids. I will have to make sure that they can explore themselves as much as possible and find something that they are passionate about. I will have to see if there are some specialty arts shops that I can visit as well.
