Today’s Parenting Tip:
DECIDE: To appreciate art
PRACTICE: Today, plan an art appreciation activity.
Go to a museum, dance performance, concert, or get some library books about some form of art. You can ask the librarian to help you find books that are pictures of finished art or of performances, not how-to books.
If you bring books home, make sure your child is aware of them and is allowed to look at them, if she wants to.
Today’s Decide and Practice daily parenting tip was inspired by our featured picture book, MORRIS THE ARTIST. Read the book to a child in your life each day as a reminder of what you are deciding and practicing that day.
Come back each day for another good parenting decision and how to practice it. (Each day’s activity will also be posted on the Daily Parenting Tips page for easy access.)
