Give them crayons

Celebrating and creating art is probably the most loved activity at Small Wonders; or at least it's a close second to nature play. Believe it or not, the kids don't always like baking or cooking, but if I ever need them to do (or not do) something, I simply remind that about an upcoming painting or colouring session, and it's on. Simple!
I also like to help the children transition between activities by simply putting down a bowl or two of crayons, a few colouring sheets, or blank paper.
Need a few minutes to get lunch ready? Give them crayons. Need to calm the kids down after very intense play? Crayons will do. It's so simple.
No real planning is needed. Just give them some crayons.
