Sometimes in parenting, the best way to foster your child’s creativity is through freedom of expression. Rather than offering a fun structured activity, why not try giving your child the tools to create without specific guidelines? Pull out the old finger paints, crayons, colored pencils, glitter, construction paper, and whatever other odds and ends you have around the house, and give your child the freedom to create. Giving your child freedom may also mean giving them inspiration. Inspiration can come from many different sources. Whether it’s a trip to the art gallery, a Google search of art, or a day in the park, anything can become inspiration for an artistic creation. You might be surprised at what your child comes up with.
