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.
Vegetables used: Okra, long beans and onion
