Some suggestions for at home creativity:
Make space for your child to create. Ideal is to tape a large piece of paper to a wall that has been covered with newspaper, plastic or drop cloth. An A4 paper (8.5”x11”) at the kitchen table works well too. Provide paint, color pencils, neocolor (crayons) or a ball point pen.
A few things to remember:
Be silent and supportive. Witness the play that is possible.
Children do not need instructions, they learn naturally.
The mere observation of expression will lead to enthusiasm.
Do not ask for additional explanations about what is created.
Allow play to happen.
The trace or scribble holds a valuable role that the spoken language is unable to address.
Trust your child’s independence and spontaneity.
Once the drawing is finished, put it in a drawer or compartment and give the child a new sheet of paper so that his or her play can go a little further.
