Art has traditionally been an important part of early childhood programs. Friedrich Froebel, the father of kindergarten, believed that young children should be involved in both making their own art and enjoying the art of others.
Deciding what they will make and what materials they will use may be the first opportunity children have to make independent choices and decisions.
Making art also builds children's self-esteem by giving them opportunities to express what they are thinking and feeling
For very young children, making art is a sensory exploration activity.
They enjoy the feeling of a marker moving across paper and seeing a blob of colored paint grow larger.
Activities centering around making art also require children to make decisions and conduct self-evaluations
