Preschool students love taking part in new and exciting activities in which they can have fun and be creative. Parents love this as well, especially when their preschooler is learning valuable lessons and supporting healthy brain development at the same time. Activities focused on art can encourage creativity and support brain development. These types of activities can be a lot of fun for preschool children. Here are a few activities that will get your child’s creative juices flowing:

Finger Painting

Finger painting is a great way to introduce your preschooler to the concepts of painting and of colors. It is a lot easier to learn to paint with ones fingers than it is with brushes, and preschoolers tend to enjoy it more. Provide non-toxic, washable paint and help your child begin applying it to a safe surface. Spend time with your child while he or she paints, and even get involved yourself. You can combine your skills together to create a joint work of art.

Drawing portraits on paper plates

This is another fun activity for your preschool child, and one that you can participate in as well. Gather a few paper plates and some pencils, markers or crayons. You and your child can draw one another’s faces on the paper plate. You can add other items, such as colored yarn to make hair or cardboard cut outs for glasses, to add even more depth and creativity to the pictures. This can help your child develop his or her fine motor skills and skills of observation.

Scratch Paper

Take your preschooler on a trip to an art store, which is an adventure in itself. There you can find pads of scratch paper in which the colors appear as you scratch over the surface of the paper. The paper is generally black and reveals the colors after scratching. You can teach your child how to spell his or her name, or to create colorful pictures.
