Art is a subject in which there are no wrong answers so it is a positive activity for your child to engage in. You’ll have to make sure you have plenty of room on the fridge though! Your child will want to show off his or her pictures to everyone and to have their efforts displayed gives them something to be proud of. Some children may find a blank piece of paper quite daunting so you may want to start them off with a colouring book.
