Meet Stephanie! She’s a 24 year old stay at home Mom, who couldn’t ask for a better blessing than to be home with her daughter!! Their favorite things to do together is working on art projects and they enjoy sharing them with people at Crafting with Bug!! In her free time she enjoys reading and scrapbooking!!
I know I have been stuck on ‘the little things’ lately but we are going to move past that! Today I want to remind you that your kids are VERY capable of doing things you may think are way beyond them. Not just in daily life (which I’m sure you know already) but also in art.
Something that sounds way beyond what they ‘typically’ are able to do is such a great way to stretch them and their abilities. When choosing an art project that may be a bit above your child’s abilities make sure it won’t frustrate them but just challenge them.
When reading through the directions to an art project there is one thing that could make or break the project for your child…Remember to ask yourself “Can I (the grown up) put the directions in a language that my child can understand?”
Most of the time something seems beyond the child because of the language the directions are written in. If the directions can be brought to their level it makes the project do-able [and fun]!!! This opens up so many more opportunities for both of you!!!
Once I was able to put the directions in a language my 2 year old daughter was able to understand she assembled the project below all by herself!
