Even with the current pandemic going on in almost all parts of the world, there are still a lot of positive reasons to look forward to during this lockdown. Like, for example, you can now enjoy more time being with your family at home, try different activities with the kids, and finally enjoying what it feels like to be home once more.
Although there are no schools during a lockdown, kids are probably at home. And instead of letting them play with gadgets all the time, it would be better to introduce them to different kinds of art activities too to help stimulate brain activeness in the house.
Some of these activities are as follows…
This first art activity is popular currently in a lot of areas for hiding and finding decorative rocks. Many villages and areas have Facebook pages dedicated to this fun and free pastime that families can do together! Simply paint some rocks however you wish, go out and hide them. And then is there is a Facebook page in your area dedicated to rock hiding then look for others and post on the page when you find them.
Wood and Wool Wind
This activity requires some adult help, especially with the hammer part of the activity, but its a great way for younger kids to start to learn to use equipment like this in an easy way and take responsibility for being careful. As long as you help and guide them and make sure they don’t hammer their fingers then you can achieve a brilliantly effective end piece of craft for the child to display proudly in their bedroom.
Masking Tape With Picture
This art project is one introduced to Daisy by her friend Jazzy B and one that he and his brother like to do lots because it can take many forms – you can be abstract or create a recognisable picture. Jazzy’s brother shows us at the end how he created a race track with his recent creation! And all you need is masking tape, paper and paints!
Glass Print Picture
This is our favourite one, as it is so easy and so effective. The patterns you can make with this effect are astounding and make fantastic end pictures to be displayed. They also open up a whole discussion about light and the perspective of light through different artworks!
Aside from these art activities, you can also check out toys your 7 year old son enjoy here.
