Art projects for kids at home

Art projects for kids at home

People constantly repeat that art classes can improve your child’s behavior. In addition, art will encourage your child to become a better learner. Usually, art classes include a lot of fun games and projects. We decided to gather some art projects that your kids can make at home. Of course, they will need some basic tools like a paintbrush, paper, and paint brushes. Art projects are developing children’s individuality and expedition. For example, toddlers become really good at holding brush which will be helpful for their writing in the future.

Although art classes, like Muzart, can’t be copied at home because teachers who educate children are highly experienced you can make with your children some art projects at home. Don’t forget that art is in the heart not in the brain so if you don’t have some tool or you want to change the paint with pastels, do it. There are a lot of different kinds of art and all of them will help your children to become better people.

Draw me a cartoon character

Most cartoon characters are really complex for drawing. Specialists work on their design for months so we can enjoy the final result. If your kid has his favorite cartoon character, find some colorful picture with bright contours. You will need a paper, too. Be extremely careful, because paper should be slightly transparent. Apply the paper to the picture and teach your child how to repeat the lines. This method is extremely interesting for small kids. When the picture is done, they will be proud of their success. It is almost like they draw it by themselves. However, if you want to increase the challenge, teach your child how to repeat the drawing, only by looking the original one or the copy (if it is a good copy). When the drawing is finished you can hang it up on the fridge and choose another one more complicated.

 

 

Draw me a season

Ask your child which is his favorite season. There are certain things that are typical for a certain season. Ask your children to tell you which are these things, for example, autumn falling leaves, hot summer sand and etc. When your child tells you things he or she links to a certain season, go and find them outside. If you want to create an autumn, you should find some leaves. Our advice is to choose red and yellow leaves instead of brown ones. If your child thinks that autumn is muddy, get some mud from outside. When you are ready, go back home and stick all these things on a paper. If there are some things that should be drawn, ask your child to fill up the blanks.

Can you imagine how many things your child will learn during this art project?

First, he or she will learn to link season with some of its characteristics. Second, he or she will learn that art can include real objects not only painted ones. Third, he will be proud with the result that he/she has created something unique. If only one art project can teach your children so many things, imagine how useful art classes are. Not only they are led by professional educators but all projects like this are encouraging children’s curiosity and individuality. Art classes in Singapore are very well situated so it will be easy to you to lead your child there. Usually, one class contains 5, 6 children because educator has to be able to pay attention to all of them. Quality art education is not only painting and drawing, it is taking care for children’s ideas and encourage their fearless creativity.

Learning phonics is extremely important for every child.

What about lessons are not enough at school and you don’t have enough time or resources to book your child to a phonics class. Phonics classes are really successful because kids become proficient in pronouncing words that they haven’t seen before. Sounds and letters in the English language are not an equal number so mastering them will ensure your child’s success at school. Reading and pronunciation should not be neglected. There are plenty of studies that prove that reading and writing lessons can determine how auspicious one person will be in the future. However, we have collected several games that you can practice at home with your children. Most of them are used in phonics Singapore so reading abilities of your children will be improved.

Phonic classes and reading words

Write some words on a paper and make your child read them slowly. Prepare some lists with words and include all that you have written on the paper before and one more. Read them to your child and ask him which one is missing. This exercise is really useful because it develops kid’s focus and attention, don’t forget they are not teens yet! Of course, if you need more challenge, read them faster or add more words.

Phonics Classes The Bingo Game

This is really fun Bingo game for at least 3 children. You should write on a paper some sounds and ask the children to write down their own sounds. While you are reading your written sounds, children should compare theirs and who have guessed all of yours is winning. Of course, you can choose how many sounds you will write but don’t include more than 15 because there is a chance kids to feel bored. In My English School in Singapore children are divided into small classes and games are played by 5,6 children only.

Sound game

Sounds distinction is really important for phonics awareness. Write down 2 words that have similar sounds and then read a list of words with the same sounds. Your children should divide the words according to their sounds in one of the groups. Groups depend on first two words you have written down. For example, pen and Ben will be in one group. This is extremely fun game if you have a really big list of words and read it fast. The children have to memorize some words if they don’t manage to write them down fast enough.

Position of the sound

As you may notice, phonics classes in Singapore are providing a lot of listening exercises. You should explain to your children to divide one page into three parts and add headings to every part — Beginning, Middle, and End. Then you should give them one sound that they should remember. The next step is you reading a list of words and children write down where the sound is positioned in the word. Have in mind that you should read slowly in order to have the best pronunciation and kids to be able to write down the word.

Phonics games at home are as much fun as all other games.

There are plenty songs that you can teach your children, too. However, if your child needs more than home activity, it will be a better idea to sign him for a phonics class where experienced teachers will help him improve his speaking, listening, and reading. Phonics classes in Singapore are not a rarity so you will have the opportunity to choose the most qualified educators. This is important because if educators are really good, your child can have improvement in weeks.
