Do you ever set out random materials for you little ones to explore without having an end result in mind?
I do that quite often for Aiden.
I believe the process is more important than the product.
On this particular day, I set out a variety of brushes and sponges for Aiden. He enjoyed discovering each brush.
I have been collecting coffee creamer containers because I like the shape and figured I could eventually use them for a craft or activity.
I decided to paint them and roll them on paper. Aiden liked this idea as well.
I thought the prints looked like a monsters so I added eyes, legs, and arms.
Aiden decorated his as well.
Then, he decided to use his fingers to paint another piece of paper.
I really enjoy process oriented activities.
Just set out a few things to use and see what happens.
You work on fine motor skills, creativity, decision making, and observation skills just to name a few!
What will your little ones create when the focus is the process not the product?
