For some reason it often seems to me that my daughter is still young for adult studies. But every time I see her crafts, my doubts disappear.
Part of the reason is that many types of creativity can now be found in special variants adapted for children. More about them in my article today.
Of course, it is not possible for a child of preschool age to embroider a large canvas with beads, but it is not difficult to make simple figurines of small beads from small beads.
We periodically buy special kits for beadwork and crafts made of beads, which have detailed product schemes. Several times we did crafts together, and then the daughter got used to it and now she creates herself.
By the way, recently we were at an exhibition of children’s creativity and I was struck by the abundance of beadwork made by children of 6-9 years. And surprisingly, it was not only girls!
The principle of this technique is quite simple. The difficulty for children is often to carefully cut out paper napkins and then wait patiently for the layers of glue, paints and varnish to dry.
To facilitate this process, we choose simple and large patterns that look just as good.
Honestly, I myself am not particularly strong in this kind of creativity. And the process of making complex multicolored bars is known to me only in theory.
Daughters need a dozen different molds, the presence of fragrance and glitter (glitter) in the soap. And the two-layer soap is the top of our creativity! Everyone is happy, the child is in charge, what else is needed?
Small crosses and a sharp needle often stop parents from doing this. I hasten to please you – in special children’s sets the needle, firstly, with a rounded end, and secondly, the canvas is rather large, and the patterns are simple.
These setters are no more expensive than a chocolate egg, and it seems to me that they are much more useful than them.
This epidemic has now spread to most children, regardless of gender and age. Filigree crocheting is not only for adults. I saw such crafts from rezinochek, which shake – figurines of your favorite characters, clothes for dolls, etc.
And the availability of detailed video instructions on the Internet greatly simplifies the process of learning weaving. Often, even the help of parents is not required. Here I see only benefit – patience, perseverance, attentiveness, fine motor skills, accuracy, etc. develop.
And what of the above do your children like to do?
