3D Art Opportunities for Children
Technology has come a long way since I was a child. My dad was an engineer and could also fix or build anything he thought of. So, as a child, I witnessed a lot of his ideas come to fruition. I would sit on the floor in his workshop with some nails, wood and a hammer to create my own masterpieces. Looking back, I know that no one other than me would have had a clue what I had made (sometimes, I did not even know what I had made. haha). I just enjoyed getting to pretend like my dad. My dad now has a 3D printer and my children want to create masterpieces, too! Never in a million years, did I expect my children to have the opportunity to create 3D art out of plastic like they can with the 3Doodler… where I can actually TELL what they created!
Creativity and Compatability – Building Toys and Game
Some children are naturally creative while others need a little more encouragement in the creativity area. Creativity can come through practice but how do you get them to practice creativity if they don’t have much of a desire? Find toys like Brik to gain their interest which in turn provides creative play.
Magnets have always been an entertainment for my kids. Whether it be the magnets on the refrigerator or just plain magnetic pieces, my boys have always loved to find ways to make the magnets stick to other objects or repel objects. MagnaFlex is a safe yet exciting alternative for children!
Lately, things have been rather crazy in the Smith house. I had an injury to my ankle resulting in a pretty extensive surgery and a long recovery. Between that and life in general, the first thing that always seems to go out the window is quality family time. Homespun and Hands-On understands the busy life of families as well as the dire need for quality time even in the mix of the hustle and bustle of LIFE!
