Provide a big canvas for big ideas

Create a play station filled with loads of art supplies to keep your kids fully engaged. Lay out a large sheet of white paper and have them paint with their hands and feet. Or print out fun coloring pages for your kids and let them experiment with a wide palette of different shades. When they've finished, take a photo of their paintings and display them on a large screen like 2019 QLED.

Cultivate your child’s green thumb

Teach your kids the rewarding satisfaction of caring for plants and watching them grow. Help them plant seeds and water flowers carefully until they blossom into vibrant shades of red, orange, yellow and more. The popular African Violet houseplant blooms in purple, which can help stimulate creativity. Incorporating natural green hues in your home can also make you feel more balanced and at peace.

Play with pigments in the kitchen

Captivate all five senses by whipping up treats with your little ones. Especially good for picky eaters, cooking with your kids gives them a chance to familiarize themselves with different ingredients. Add fresh fruits to your recipe for a splash of color therapy. Oranges have a cheery and inviting tone, while the yellow in mangoes encourages confidence and positivity. A feast for all the senses.

Fostering a bond that will last

Color activities are an effective method of communication between parent and child. Take a step back and allow your kids total freedom in choosing colors and forming their creations. Stay involved by asking them questions and praising their choices. Positive reinforcement boosts confidence, gives children a sense of accomplishment, and promotes independence.
