Art and Creativity

Art is important for children especially during their early development. Research shows that art activities develop brain capacity in early childhood; in other words, art is good brain food! Art engages children’s senses in open-ended play and develops cognitive, social-emotional and multi-sensory skills. As children progress into elementary school and beyond, art continues to provide opportunities for brain development, mastery, self esteem and creativity.

Coco-Nutty Creations

Coco-Nutty CreationsPerhaps the ultimate recycled artform! I found these creative creatures scattered on a park lawn near the beach and had to snap a photo of this guy in particular. Isn't he charming? Some creative soul made great use of the coconut husks that had fallen from nearby palm trees.

Why not look around YOUR environment and use this as an inspiration. Take a nature walk with your children and see what you can create from rocks, pinecones, driftwood, and your own particular natural resources.

What do you think. I received a letter from rolex watches. Customs today and they have confiscated breitling replica sale. I will send you a copy of the notice if you want. Rolex uses only top quality materials, especially for its rolex replica sale collections, so you get a fantastic piece of natural replica watches sale that is both legible and useful. One of the appeals of this watch is the accumulation of rare materials in one product, as it combines 18ct white gold, diamonds, and meteorite, all of which are considered precious materials. While the actual rolex replica uk scarcity of these materials can be debated, one of the purposes of integrating these materials together is to enhance the inherent worth of the watch. How can you get it to me. This is the rolex watches store I have ordered and the other rolex replica watches arrived in just a week. This replica watches sale has been sitting in customs for 12 days.
