Including art as an important part of any preschool program can have an enormous impact on your child’s growth. Not only will it prepare your child for academic success in school, but it will foster early emotional development and offer your child opportunity to express themselves creatively.
When kids engage in an art project, even from an early age, they explore size and shapes. Kids begin evaluating and comparing objects, strengthening early math skills. More importantly, drawing, painting, and other art activities help kids develop spatial reasoning skills. For this activity, we practiced our color recognition skills by creating these fun rainbow collages. This was a three-dimensional activity so students we able to create three-dimensional art! Using a variety of colorful materials, your little ones separated small items by color. The finished product was a beautiful rainbow!
