Art is a natural activity to support free play in children. It’s the freedom to manipulate different materials in an organic and unstructured way that allows for exploration and experimentation. These artistic endeavors and self-directed explorations are not only fun, but educational as well. Art allows toddlers to practice a wide range of skills that are useful not only for life, but also in learning.
Art is vital! When children are engaged in hands-on art activities they learn much better in all developmental areas.
