As parents we want to provide everything that will develop our kids’ creativity and talent. My eldest son, Nathan is interested in arts, particularly drawing and coloring. A trip to the bookstore will not be complete without taking home some art materials. He would always request for crayons, craypas, colored pens and paper, I in turn is so happy, because these things are not expensive compared to gadgets and toys. I probably have kept 2 gallons of crayons in several Ziplocs hoping to use old crayons in summer for some art activities. This February, they will be celebrating Community helpers day at school, they’ve been interviewed by their guidance counselor and had been asked what they want to be when they grow up, and he said he wants to be an artist. So this wednesday, he will go to school as an artist. My baby Neo on the other hand, is still on the exploring stage, he likes building blocks and scribbling. Whatever kuya does, he wants to mimic. So if kuya is busy with art activity, i see to it that Neo has his own crayons and book or paper as well.
Let us buy appropriate toys and tools that can help our children develop creativity, praising their work would encourage them to continue practicing and honing their craft. Our walls have so many drawings now, I was mad until i realized it is a stage that each child passes by. No childhood is complete without ever trying to draw on walls or pavement. Draw all you want my children, we will just have our walls repainted in time, your enjoyment and happiness is worth more than all the paints in the world!
|i love you much more nathan!|
