What are your favourite arts, crafts and activities to do with your children?
What arts and crafts can your children do independently?
In my opinion, it is important to provide your children with a mix of activities including ones that they can do independently and ones that require adult assistance. It is fun to do arts and crafts with your children, but it is also important for children to learn the skill of independence in order to gain confidence in their own creative skills.
Have you ever heard of the debate between process versus product?
Back when I was in University, this was a debate that was discussed often amongst my Child Studies classmates. What was more important? Providing children with process oriented or product oriented crafts? I truly believe that a mix of the two is important as they both have merit.
Every Wednesday, I post Artsy Play Wednesday; an opportunity for people who like to do crafts and activities with their kids can visit my blog and get ideas. It is also an opportunity for bloggers to link up their favourite activities and crafts of the week.
Theresa, Shannon, Kristen and I decided to host a giveaway hop in conjunction with our regular Artsy Play Wednesday to thank you, our loyal readers for coming back each week to check out all of the fun activities.
