- Cengage Learning
The creative possibilities are endless with this series of six books focusing on traditional art mediums for children ages 2-8. By emphasizing the process rather than the final project, these activities open a great arena for creativity, self-expression, and exploration for children and for their parents or teachers. Each book boasts at least 50 activities that will develop an appreciation of traditional art mediums. Activities are written in an easy-to-follow "cookbook" format and begin with a list of developmental goals and required materials. Helpful Hints make for a smooth experience, and Variations show how each experience can be expanded on. The Index by Ages makes it easy to find age-appropriate activities.
