Monday, I was over at PowerfulMothering.com for a guest post about how to look at art with toddlers and preschoolers. There are so many awesome websites with fabulous art activities for toddlers and preschoolers, but there is not a lot out there about how to look at and talk about art with your kids. I wrote a post for Powerful Mothering that covers the nuts and bolts of the issue.
In the post, I answer the questions:
- Why should I look at art with my kids when I can barely manage to take a shower?
- Do I have to go to an art museum? If not, how do I show my kids the artworks?
- Which artworks should I choose?
- How do I talk about art with my kids? What should I say?
I created three other posts on this site as a companion to that piece. These three posts directly relate to what I talked about in my guest post. So, after you have read my guest post, check out these posts to take your next steps!
