Support creativity in your neighborhood schools with art supplies kids need to make their mark!
Scribble with bold colors across a sheet of paper. Now step back and turn the scribbles into what you see taking form. Is it a duck, a boat or a cloud? Using a marker, outline the image together.
Place colored paper squares on the floor and turn on some good music. Shout the name of colors together as you dance and jump onto the squares.
Provide your child with simple props such as scarves, hats, puppets and instruments to use in an imaginative play scenario. Start the play story with "Let's imagine we are..." as you act out the who, what, when and where together.
