The Importance of Art in Child Development

My 4-year-old is obsessed with my workstation. For Christmas my husband made me a pretty awesome art station, and, before I knew it, I was spending a lot of time in the basement journaling and crafting. My son's train table that my husband built for him is also in the basement, so I thought it would be perfect - he loves his trains and I love my journaling - we could literally spend a whole day there and do our own thing. One day I was spray painting my journal pages and playing around with an idea when my son climbed up on a chair across from me and said "Ok. I am ready to paint too." And there it started..... Did I also mention that PBS recently shared a really great article about the Importance of Art in Child Development? It is no wonder Hank is a genius.....
