Art is fun for kids but did you know that it also helps them with vital life skills?
Cutting paper or mixing colors helps kids build fine motor skills. This means that they are becoming more coordinated. And for younger children, doing art gives them practice controlling a pen or pencil. This skill comes in handy later when they are learning to write.
Art also lets kids be creative. Creativity is important for problem-solving as a child and adult.
So what sorts of simple art projects can your child do during the summer? Here are a few ideas.
We want to see your kids in action! Be sure to submit photos of your kids doing art for a chance to be featured on the GonzalesWay.org.
