PARENTING

Creativity is as important as Literacy

November 21, 2016

Did you ever find it difficult to choose a perfect gift for Kids? Now being a Mother myself, I have figured out some creative gifts, Kids will play with over and over and are worth every penny spent.

Its been almost 6 months we are trying our hands at Messy play. Once in a week works perfectly for us.

 

Messy Play time

Every weekend, my Toddler and I get ready for the fun. I signals him by saying- Lets’s do painting. He always responds with- YAY!
I love the excitement in his voice every time we begin to play and get messy.

I am in love with these creative gifts so much that I suggest these to every Parent.

  • I think when we expose our children to creativity and allow them freedom to express themselves we are giving them the best gift. I know when I stifle my own creativity I become stressed and unhappy and I believe we need to allow our children to explore their own unique skills and self expression #mg

    • Thanks for your thoughts MG, I too engage myself in play and creative things when I feel loaded. These creative tools help Kids to explore.

    Ah we have an aquadoodle mat and it is a huge success, for everyone. I can nip out the room without worrying about pen on the walls. Play dough is also a massive hit in our house too. I haven’t tried edible paints yet but it does sound like something I should try…I think, knowing my children they will try to eat non edible paint too! thanks for sharing at #familyfun

  • obsessivemom

    Great ideas. My kids are ten and even today they love play dough and slime and the chalk board.

    • Its great to know that my list is practical and shared by many. 🙂

  • Janine (unhinged mummy)

    Some great ideas there and I agree that messy play is so important. It helps with speech and language as well as communication, sensory and gross motor skills. I have to admit though I’m not a lover of messy play. I hate clearing it up so once a week I take my daughter to a messy play group and she does it there instead.

    • I think its totally fine. Here in India, we do not have such play groups. I can see the after effects of messy play on my Kiddo. Thanks for taking time to share your thoughts. Hope to see you often here Janine.
