Monday’s Parenting Thought
Because art is messy, it can be an opportunity to help children learn about chores.
Require children to clean up after their art projects.
Make a list of the steps needed for a good cleanup job. Use pictures for children who do not read yet. Example for Play-Doh:
Put dough back in containers;
Make sure lids are on containers;
Put containers on shelf;
Wipe off table.
Check off each item on the list – done or undone.
Check the quality of the work done – well done or try again.
Inspired by the picture book, MORRIS THE ARTIST.
