Exploring art is such an important part childhood (and beyond!) With just a simple set of materials you are giving your child the opportunity to explore
the math of shapes, colour mixing, geometry and more;
storytelling and language development as they draw characters, create a scene and talk about their art;

The art projects are indexed by topic, material, technique and theme, to help you find ideas that are just right for your child.
