KID'S CRAFT ACTIVITIES

Elzinga Collective takes all kinds of art and crafting very seriously!

Starting kid's early with art and craft can do great things for their self concept and their self esteem. When practiced correctly with patience and through love and nurturing of their talents, kid's can gain confidence and grow their artistic skills and talents productively through fun.

Tip: Start with age appropriate activities, your child will get frustrated easily when an activity is to hard for them and may form a dislike of "Art & Craft".
Tip: Allow children to make mistakes when creating, over correcting kid's may lead to feelings that they are not capable, children learn through mistakes and it's a big process of creative learning. Not everything has to be a masterpiece!
Tip: Creating can be messy, use an old adult t-shirt as an art smock and let kids get dirty!

DID YOU KNOW......A research paper by the University of Western Sydney, Macarthur, in 1999, looked at creative art and self concept and the influence of family background. They suggest that there is a definitive link in those children who had parents with a substantial interest in art and whom exposed their children to artistic and creative activities at home, and that those children would ultimately have a higher artistic self concept then children who were limited in their exposure.

TIP: Build on previous learnt knowledge, your child will form a solid foundation if you start slowly and build a materials library bank of knowledge. E.g. most kid's know that you can draw on paper, but teach them other crafts that can be done with paper to extend their knowledge of what paper can do, and build their library of memories and thus confidence in working with paper in the future will be easier and better. Think: collage, scrapbooking, 3D cubes, paper chains, making recycled paper.
All crafts FREE to download and print.
Tip: Recycle your materials...after a while kids will forget about their prized creation, and all those chenille sticks, embellishments, paper can be expensive after a while, so while they are not looking, salvage only those non masterpieces back into your art box, better still make it a project in recycling and come up with ways with your child in how you could recycle old art into a new one. Think: collage, scrapbooking, masks, paper pulp statue.
Tip: Using recycled cardboard like cereal boxes to create, it's strong to build 3D shapes from and is a great way to recycle and is cheap as chips!
