Here is Dylan mixing the paint. With SPD this is a wonderful experience for him. It is also a great self confidence booster. Quite often children with and without disorders need to know there are some things they can do themselves. There was a mess sure, but it cleaned up super easy and he was very excited to tell everyone that he stirred the paint up all by himself! I am a firm believer that each decade children have less to be creative with. Kelly Kits has given some of that right of passage back by offering creative ideas that can be easy or more developed if you go online and read or watch a video on what can be done - learned with each monthly kit.He is really into his creative side. He is concentrating on the sponge to be sure the shape comes out where he wants it. For younger children this is a real learning moment. If he turns it one way the painted rectangle will go one way while if he turns it sideways it will go in a total different direction. This may sound very simple but try to think with a 4 year old's mind. Achievements to small children can be very tiny but that is ok as it builds them as a person.
Kayla starts out a little "neater" but soon lets loose! She enjoys hands on or should I say hands in crafts or art. She also likes very specific detailed things too. I guess we all have different sides of ourselves (I won't tell if you don't) ha ha Kayla finding her creative side. It was a bit easier for her. She tends to be a lot neater and for awhile I thought maybe them working together would hinder her. Then it became obvious she likes when they do artsy things together because she can let herself just play with no expectations of herself.
