With the holidays over and winter in full force, cold weather may be keeping you and your family cooped up indoors. Instead of hibernating until spring, battle cabin fever by taking this time to get creative with your little one.
Creativity, the freest form of self-expression, plays a vital role in your child’s development. In fact, simply allowing your child the opportunity to make her own creative choices can positively affect her life in ways you might not expect. In addition to fueling the imagination and nurturing emotional health, giving your child the freedom and tools to express herself creatively—and without judgment— has been known to:
• boost self confidence
• fight depression
• foster mental growth
• help express or cope with feelings
• improve problem-solving skills
For some, being creative simply means drawing or painting. At Sparkling Tiara, we believe that opportunities for creativity are all around and we are proud to carry a variety of products to help your little princess get her creative juices flowing. One of our personal favorite lines, ALEX, has been producing children’s arts and crafts products since 1986 with their primary mission to help foster personal expression and build self-esteem in children—something we can always stand behind.
