To stimulate creativity, one must develop the childlike inclination for play and the childlike desire for recognition.

The bright colors and the feel of paint on their little hands excite them to the point that they want to color the whole world. Starting with their mom's favorite bed sheet or the walls. So, instead of discouraging them by scolding, why not channel their creative itch in a productive manner by gifting your budding artists an appropriate present.
And not to mention spare the walls, sheets, and their baby brother/sister's face from being their canvas. Here are some gifts ideas for artistically inclined children.
It doesn't really matter what they make out of it, as long as they get to squish the dough in their hand and enjoy the experience of sculpting and molding with their little fingers.
You will find play doughs made from natural and safe ingredients. This gift is also ideal for toddlers and young children as it not only increases their imagination and keeps them busy, but also develops their motor skills and hand-eye coordination.
Don't forget to pair the watercolors and other paints with brushes, otherwise, they'll have to paint with their little fingers, and you don't want that do you?
This gift will last the child a very long time. Try finding a portable easel with drawers or other types of storage facilities, this will help kids to pursue their love for painting wherever and whenever they please.
If you plan to gift a drawing book, choose one that has a hard backboard, to give the child ample support. It will not only serve the purpose at home, but also help the child in his/her school work.
Gift them along with felt paper or colored paper, and the kids are sure to display their creative cutting and paper folding skills. However, this gift is ideal for kids aged 10 years and above.
Some kits also contain a plastic hoop to hold the fabric in place. Once the cross stitch pattern is complete, you can frame it as wall decor.
Cross stitch is time-consuming and young kids might get bored easily, therefore, it is ideal to start with a small and easy pattern, just to get them interested in the craft.
