The holiday season is busy no matter what you do or do not celebrate. Social engagements, school functions, and extra time shopping takes a toll. We all get wound up and kids are no exception. Use art to take a break and get calm between the sugar rushes and other holiday excitement.
What You Will Need
- Paint of your choice — we love watercolors
- Paint brushes
- Music, classical is my choice, but I like to throw in some electronic dance music just to shake things up a bit
Let Them Paint
Turn on the music and encourage your child to paint to the music, if it’s slow and soft, paint how that sounds and if it’s loud and fast, paint that way… there is no wrong way to do this, and no two children attack it exactly the same way. Enjoy the break from the hectic holiday pace and relax with art!
