Young Rembrandts is joining the coloring craze with their own beautifully designed and drawn coloring pages. You can find them for sale on their website. The idea behind them is that, adults everywhere are enjoying coloring, so why not kids. Especially Young Rembrandts art kids.
I started Young Rembrandts 30 years ago with the goal of helping kids develop the skills they need to be successful in and out of the classroom. Now, three decades later, we’re so excited that Young Rembrandts is celebrating its diamond anniversary with a collection of community partnership programs across a six-month celebration campaign.
I have been seeing article after article about the value of giving children experiences rather than things. If your house is looking like mine with all the toys no one plays with taking over areas of the house that are not meant for toys, then gifts of experiences are the way to go.
I know you’ve already filled your house with markers, crayons, pencils, paper and all sorts of other things to keep the kids creative. So now what can you get your creative, visual thinker? I have found some great ideas to utilize those right brain skills and keep the kids creating.
Hundreds of thousands, even millions of adults have gotten a taste of how good it feels to get in touch with their creative side by coloring, but what about our kids? They spend 6 or 8 hours a day in school focused on reading, writing and arithmetic. Add 1 to 3 hours of homework, maybe a little screen time and hopefully some physical activity. Eat. Sleep. Rinse and repeat. Where’s their coloring time? When do they get to create, play, build things, use their imaginations? Half of their brain is built to create, to think outside the box, but if it’s not happening at school when is it happening?
