Of course you want to encourage creativity in your little ones and it melts your heart when they present you with the newest picture they made just for you. But that doesn’t necessarily mean you want your kitchen table covered in paint or after each creation. Kids and art projects often leave behind such a huge mess that some moms may so no to at-home art day just to avoid it. This can be easily solved by designating an area in your home and creating a kids art studio.
If you have a basement or a spare room you can dedicate to a mega-art station, great. You can paint the walls with chalkboard paint, cover the floor in washable tiles and fill the room with easels, child-size drawing tables and chairs, and bins of supplies for each child. You can even let your own creative side come out and create a stencil border to run around the walls with your children’s names and other words associated with art. If you don’t have an entire room to dedicate to an art studio, you can designate a corner of a room and lay down plastic on the floor and place an easel and small table upon it. Once you create a safe space, you can encourage your kids to create all day.
