Rainy day or really bad weather? Are you looking for an indoor program for the kids? Then tinker with children! For these times, I have something originally in the closet, which is then unpacked.
Tinker with your kids!
The kids are happy and curious what to expect. I know, the smaller children often do not have enough patience to sit still for a long time. But also for smaller children are craft lessons or painting afternoons suitable. Creativity and imagination are important. The children have a lot of imagination and it is conducive to their development to live it out. Something tinkered or painted does not have to be beautiful in our eyes. It’s great in children’s eyes and they’re proud of the result. And if we praise them, they are happy!
Practice fine motor skills
They enjoy creating or painting something with mum or dad. It also promotes fine motor skills. The more that is practiced, the faster success sets in and the better you learn how to deal with scissors, glue or crayons.
Support your children to develop creative confidence! This confidence is important for their development. They will love to be producers, to think big and wide, instead of just moving in a small limited space. This is far better than just being a consumer. A child with creative confidence who wants to produce, build, paint or solve a problem knows intuitively that there are different ways that are right. Their own and unique way is the right way!
