Traditional dances lessons are a good way to keep your child active. Dance lessons are not just for competition and winning trophies. They instill confidence, focus, and discipline. Dancing increases expressive and verbal vocabulary.
Listen to music, sing songs, or march to music with store bought, or homemade musical instruments made out of bells, or oatmeal container drums.
Taking instrumental music or singing lessons are beneficial. Learning a piece of music instills patience and confidence. The vibration of an instrument against a player's body can significantly lower a persons stress level.
Arts and Crafts
Introducing and involving children in craft projects will promote interest in their thoughts about the arts. Through art children can learn to think creatively. Young children are already highly creative, and art can help to push their boundaries to think outside of the box as they grow up. Creating something artistic on their own can give children the sense of accomplishment. Take children to art museums for enrichment!
Puzzle: Make a puzzle out of a favorite photo or picture. Print out the photo on an 8 x 11-inch piece of paper. Glue the printout onto a sturdy piece of cardboard. On the back draw shape pieces, and then cut out.
