Authentic Art Materials for Toddlers: Introducing Clay

Authentic Art Materials for Toddlers - clayOver on Playful Learning I’m talking about something I am quite passionate about; authentic art materials for toddlers. It’s the first in a series of posts on introducing art materials to toddlers.

When we give young children the opportunity to explore and create with authentic art materials we are telling them that art is meaningful and their experiences with art are valuable. We also allow them to develop a relationship with art as a means for communication. Like reading and writing, art too can be a language for expression.

I hope you’ll pop over and have a read and share some of your early art experiences with your children.
