He Loves Colours!

My son only started to love doing art and craft after watching Mister Maker two months ago. It's an art and craft show for pre-schoolers and it teaches in a fun way. He would request me to help him do one of the art and craft items being thought in the show of the day. I usually hope that he would choose the one from "Minute Make" because that will be extremely easy to make. As the name implies, it can be done within a minute!

Upon seeing his enthusiasm in art, I bought him a set of poster colours, paint brushes, palette and art blocks for him to start exploring art in a way that entices him. Before this, we only had colouring books and simple cut and paste art and craft sessions that he finds quiet boring. 

As a 3-year-old, he may not be good at using a paint brush to paint a particular object (such as an apple, a tree or a flower) yet so I started him off with something he could do on his own or with minimal help.  

Here are some of the art activities we did during the past month.
