Week of the Young Child™ 2015 - Artsy Thrusday

Today is Artsy Thursday: think, problem solve, create!

The National Associate for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) continues their celebration of the Week of the Young Child by reminding us "children develop creativity, social skills and fine muscles with open-ended art projects where they can make choices, use their imaginations and create with their hands. On Artsy Thursday celebrate the joy and learning children experience when engaged in creative art making. Use any materials - from crayons to paint, clay to crafts! Create and share a photos of your child' creation on NAEYC's Facebook page or post to Twitter using the #woycartsy hashtag."

While we don't make artistic masterpieces to be brought home in any of the Signing Smart classes, creativity is never in short supply! At any given time, you might find a child using a rubber duck as a chewer, helping bears go through their bedtime routine, or dancing his heart out.  Even our youngest students have a chance to participate in songs, dances, and activities in their own ingenious ways!

How will you involve art on this Artsy Thursday?
