Encourage Your Child’s Artistic Streak
Not every youngster will grow up to be an artist, but if your little cutie has a knack for artsy little scribbles, you may want to nurture that.
Art is just like any other skill. It has to be honed, developed, encouraged, and nurtured. Independent Toddler Childcare wants to help you unleash your child’s inner artist. So here are a few tips on how to do just that:
- Provide inspiration
Kids don’t like to follow instructions. New teachers in Early Childhood Education notice that pretty quickly. But you can use this to your advantage. Try to incorporate art into your child’s environment. Add some fun coloring books to your shelves, or play different music genres.
- Be their tutor
Sometimes kids can be discouraged from pursuing their passion because it seems difficult on their first few attempts. You don’ have to be a professional, simply choose a few easy, but cool things to draw that you can teach your child. Teachers at our Daycare in New York do this quite often during arts and crafts. Little ones are taught how to draw fruits, flowers, and a few animals.
- Earning instruments
If your child is musically inclined, enroll them in music classes. Be it singing, piano, guitar, or another instrument, many classes can cater to your needs. While we do sometimes play with instruments in our Childcare Center in New York, New York, it’s best to enroll your child in a professional music school to hone their skills.
