Why? Because kid art is the best art!
I found this in my craft room this morning.
It's by my nephew, Michael. Santa Godzilla. Love it!
Nana's Christmas Card by Michael.
I smile every time I read the transplant and mirror image notes on the inside of the card!
I'm very lucky and I find wonderful little art offerings like this in my room quite often.
I think the best way to get your kids creating is to just provide supplies-- free-of-charge, free of adult guidance (safe, of course), and free to use THEIR imagination.
I do end up having to clean up a lot of glue, glitter, clay, paint...you name it, but it's worth it!
