kandinsky 300 225Enjoying creative activities is really good for us. No matter what your age, finding someway to express yourself creatively has all kinds of benefits.   One of the best ways to connect with children is to be creative with them.

Somehow making art created a relaxed atmosphere that allowed us to enjoy each others company and perhaps talk a little deeper than we usually did.
