Creative Activities for Kids at Home
Arts and craft kits make great gifts. They’re colorful, engaging, multisensory and come with directions! To help with your shopping I’ve curated a few shopping lists, based by age. This list is for your older elementary and middle school aged kids.
Gifts made by the kids are a wonderful way to show Mom how much you care while giving her a keepsake from those younger years. I have found a few beautiful ways to use your child’s hand print as well as some other great gifts that are sure to stand the test of time as far as homemade gifts go.
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.
Spring break is upon us and, it’s exciting to be free from schedules and homework. However, fear strikes when you realize no school means no routines and nothing for the kids to do all day. But have no fear! There are ways to make your time off fun, maybe even fruitful.
One of my favorite self-care ideas is coloring! There is just something about the simplicity of a new coloring book and the smell and excitement of a new box of colored pencils that calms and resets my mind. And the great thing about coloring is that it can be done almost anywhere whether you have 5 minutes or 5 hours to devote to it.
