As a child I loved various applications: both purchased and those that my mother painted and cut out for me. Now I try to inculcate my love for decorative art in my daughter, who is five years old. Of course, due to the lack of time for self-made applications in our collection of works is very small. As a rule, these are ready-made printed versions: applications on a cardboard basis or in the form of magazines.
Applications – a great way to hang out the child in those periods when the mother needs to do something important. In such cases, I make blanks for two or three images, and the child for about an hour is independently busy with his favorite thing.
Of course, this is suitable for children of five years of age and older. A three-year-old kid cannot cope with the task, he will need the help of an adult. Taking an appliqué graet plays an important role in the development of children, namely:
– develops imagination
– fine motor skills
Due to these qualities, the application as a separate subject is included in the training program for preschool children. From the age of two you can acquaint the child with this kind of creativity, gradually complicating the plots.
Of course, not every child has a talent for drawing. Application can be a great alternative to this.
Does your child love appliqués?
