Here’s another shameless plug for kids taking an art class. Yes, it’s because I’m the founder Young Rembrandts, the coolest and only drawing program out there – but mostly because after years of research, I know how much doing art affects a child’s social-emotional well-being, while expanding brain function overall.
At Young Rembrandts we’ve been interviewing kids that have been drawing with us this past year. For some kids, drawing was a way to continue the classes they were used to at school. For others, it was a way to keep their minds off the stress they were feeling around them.
One big loss from last year was writing. The literal act of writing letters and numbers on paper. This is going to affect all our learners, but especially our kindergarteners and early primary grades. A solid foundation in the early years is essential to learning.
Let’s face it, we all could use a summer break from the past year or so. (It’s been challenging, to say the least!) Don’t worry! We’ve got five tips to help parents find the right activities for their children based on their unique interests, abilities and needs.
February is American Heart Month and Young Rembrandts is celebrating with an exclusive, free package of Heart Healthy activities in partnership with ActivityHero, Soccer Stars, Little Medical School, and Taste Buds Kitchen! Have fun with a variety of heart-themed activities including art, fitness, cooking, and science of the heart.
As if we haven’t been at home long enough, the weather is getting colder and forcing us inside in many parts of the world. I have gathered a list of fun and educational activities to help your family keep busy and occupied at home no matter what the weather looks like.
