My “Fun Rules” to enjoy your art & craft projects even more!

  1. Keep the supplies accessible and within your child’s reach. However, always watch your child to avoid accidents.
  2. Let your child lead you! Sometimes they have better ideas than us.
  3. Set up a dedicated space where he can sit and make his art & craft projects! Not sure how to set up your child’s play/art area? Check out my blog Organizing Your Toddler’s Play Area to know more.
  4. Do not panic about the mess he makes. It is okay. Art is messy and it is a sign of creativity too!!
  5. Teach them to clean up after they are done, it induces discipline & respect for the things they have!
  6. Let them be creative.
