I have two kids. Daughter and son – as I wanted. Of course, I love them more than life, and for me they are the very same (as for any mother, her children). My krovinochki (in my opinion) the most beautiful, intelligent and talented. And also – very creative people, and this is not only my opinion.
When my daughter only tried herself in different types of creativity. I gave her complete freedom of choice, unconsciously sent her to diversify. As a result, she chose the art of creating jewelry from satin ribbons. And besides this, she draws well, knows how to play the piano and sometimes writes good verses.
Now my son is growing up. He has just the age when literally everything is interesting, from origami to wood burning. And I decided to approach the process of developing his creative abilities more thoughtfully. After reading a lot of advice from experts on child psychology, I made a tentative list of actions and activities, which I now try to follow.
My effective ways
one. Going for a walk with my son, I take a small notebook and a box with pencils in my purse. At any moment, even in the queue to the doctor, my son can draw whatever he pleases. You can offer your child to draw a fantasy animal, a certain mix, of famous crumbs. True, we still get only bright scribbles.
2 Dancing to the music of different styles not only develops not only the coordination of movements, but also fantasy. Mom is also supposed to dance, no excuses. And I do not mind.
3 On the way to the kindergarten and back, we study the names of trees, birds and animals with our son. After a week of such educational walks, my baby clearly called 7 species of trees and 4 species of birds.
four. We build castles, fortresses and huts from pillows, blankets and sheets. Most often the author of the project is my boy, not me.
five. From time to time I begin to read a fairy tale to my son, and he himself continues the story. Believe me – sometimes he makes up such plots …
6 And we love to draw on smooth sea stones. So far these are simple drawings – the sun, a ladybug or a smiley, and in due course we will master more complex images.
7 Having fun without a TV, computer and other gadgets is not at all difficult. There are so many interesting activities in the house and on the street – all you need is to push the imagination of the crumbs, and then everything goes like clockwork.
eight. Observing how I take care of the flowers in our garden and plants in the garden, my son also expressed his desire to grow his plant. Well, the desire is very commendable and useful for the development of creative abilities.
9. And one more thing – instead of a direct answer to numerous children’s questions, try to ask why the hell is thinking. Believe me, sometimes you can hear such an amazing answer! And the arguments are really very true.
These are the small tips that I adhere to and recommend to you.
And how do you help develop the creative beginning of your little ones?
