How to Teach Your Children with Arts and Crafts

How Do I Get My Child Into Art?

Teaching them early and making a habit can lead kids to better and more involved in art.

Parents who have been exposed to arts and crafts when they were younger tend to want their children to experience the same fun they had back when they were young. It’s easy to show your children how you do arts and crafts, but how do you properly teach them without pressuring them?


Before we talk about that, let’s discuss the benefits of your children learning arts and crafts. It has been said by Katharine Rogers from ABC (2018) that arts and crafts can enhance mental health and wellbeing of a child. She added that kids’ will be able to know how things work and like how colors fit each other which also benefits their critical thinking skill and it also enhances the creativity of the kids by learning to experiment and have fun.

Now that you know the benefits of kids learning arts and crafts, how do you teach arts and crafts to them without pressuring them?


  1. Show how fun it is to play with colors and shapes

  2. Make sure that you always have art supplies at home

  3. Craft and draw their favorites

  4. Invite their friends over to experiment and have fun with the art supplies you have at home


The first thing you need to do is to show them how fun it is to play with colors and shapes, but of course, guidance is needed especially when sharp things like scissors and cutters will be used. The second thing you need to do once they’re aware of the fun of arts and crafts is to buy art supplies, of course you won’t be able to craft if you don’t have any art supplies with you at home. So make sure that you always have stocks available at home.


Another way to teach your children is to start crafting and drawing their favorites. An example of that is when I made a dinosaur out of paper which my cousin really loved and he ended up asking me how I did it, so I taught him and every now and then he has been asking me to do origami with him. That’s an easy way of getting them involved with arts and crafts. 


The last thing I would suggest on how you can teach your children with arts and crafts is to ask them to invite their friends over and experiment with the art supplies you have at home, they will still be needing your guidance for that. Always remember that in teaching your children to do arts and crafts, your guidance is always needed and of course a comfortable place where they can lay on their stomach while drawing. Adding a mellow music or the music that they would like might also encourage them to do more.

The Girl Who Leapt Through Time Anime Movie Review

If you're looking for a cute love story with emotional lessons, this slice of life Anime checks all the boxes. I don't know if I'm just emo or if this is a really sad movie, but the main character gets launched off of her broken bike into an oncoming bullet train and just before she is liquidated she teleports back in time. 

To start off, I would like to express my upsetting utterance to Makoto Konno. No, no, not directly to the writer nor the production team. In fact it was a fine piece — more on to that later. I was disappointed with Makoto’s follinies. More like: The Girl Who Played With Time.

I mean, she was the main character, the girl who leapt through time, and her characterization was important on how the story will unfold itself. As a writer, I understand it, I swear…

But still!

Well, only one thing to say about the writing: it was effective.

What is Japanese Jujutsu and how does it differ from Brazilian Jiu Jitsu?

Japanese Jiu-Jitsu is regarded as the birthplace of all other grappling styles, with its origins traceable back to it. That's all there is to it, simply said. To begin with, it was a perilous means of keeping the samurai alive while fighting without weapons in the heat of combat.

Traditional Japanese Jiu-Jitsu is still taught and practiced in the majority of gyms today. It is effective despite the fact that it is not based on the military paradigm. Traditional Jiu-Jitsu is regaining popularity among the general public as a result of the massive expansion of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. It's important to realize, however, that the two genres of art are fundamentally unique.
