- Why is handicrafts with children always a great activity?
When doing handicrafts with children, you shouldn’t spare time, effort or money. The easiest way to stimulate children’s interest is with finger paints and homemade modeling clay. Toddlers want to test their artistic potential very early on while painting, and it often depends on their parents whether they develop it further or not. Show patiently how to use the paints and pens and give them templates. That helps a lot and the toddlers learn to be skillful at an early age.
Use any suitable occasion or a specific party to tell the little ones something exciting about it. For example, there are many great stories about the Easter bunny that the little ones can read to and motivate them to make little bunnies together. This is an important step towards the creativity of the little ones and the good results are not long in coming. In our annual calendar you will find many more possibilities for handicrafts with children. At the top of this list are family celebrations like Christmas and Easter, followed by Halloween, the harvest festival and the summer holidays. And don’t forget to encourage your little one’s creativity and manual dexterity.
- What materials can you do handicrafts with children?
Handicrafts with children can be done with a wide variety of materials. For one, you need to see what you already have at home. You can always buy something extra in the nearby craft store as needed. In addition to brightly colored paints and modeling clay, you also need paper and cardboard, scraps of fabric and glue, plants and wood.
