Face Painting Can Be Educational As Well As Creative
Bo Bugles, the manufacturer of the Ultimate Face Painting Kit for Kids Party Pack said today that, “Face painting is sometimes seen as just a great thing to do at kids parties, but it can be much more than that. It can be artistic, creative and educational fun, anytime.”
The spokesperson continued, “Face painting can be used in many ways. Just the act of painting can stimulate the artistic nature of a child, unleashing the creative in them. We have all heard about how the right side and left side of the brain works in different ways, the right side being the part that controls the creative side and the left side controlling the more structured part like math etc. So, when you add in the possibilities of a structured theme to the mix in a face painting session, you can expand the nature of the activity to include educational themes, like a jungle theme that can be paired with teaching children about elephants and tigers and lions and where they live. You can weave in the natural world, geography and conservation. What started out as just kids getting messy with paint can become so much more. This means you are stimulating both left and right sides of the brain at the same time, giving those young brains a great little workout!”
“Learning can take many forms, but the best are ones in the early years are when children actually don’t even think they are learning because they are having too much fun! Art is an integral part of a child’s development, so using the face painting as a learning carrot, so to speak, means parents can slip in educational themes like plants and trees, wildlife and even subjects like history and geography. We know parents are using study plans and questions whilst the kids paint to a specified theme to root facts into the activity.”
“Even as kids get a little older, the system still works, whether it’s Football, or any other sport. You can use the face painting kit to enforce the geography of the country, state capitals etc into the activity without them ever realising!”
Here is one idea for a small group session
1 Choose a theme. E.g. African animals
2. Ask the children who they want to be. Discuss the wide variety of animals that live in Africa, where the jungles are, where the deserts are etc.
3. You could have a map or atlas handy to discuss exactly where the animals come from, what they eat etc.
With a little thought, you just created a fun group session that fits all the stimulating needs required for young children.
“Of course, that’s not say that you can’t just use the face paint to get into some messy fun. We just want to highlight the fact that a face painting kit has a more educational side to it, if a parent should wish to explore it.”
The Face Painting Kit for Kids Ultimate Party Pack is a bumper face painting kit with a 4g x eight colors palette, 2 glitter palettes, 2 sponges and 2 brushes. The extra large size of the colors means that the kit should easily paint between 50 and 100 faces, enough for any birthday party or large get together. Alternatively it should cover lots of smaller group sessions where you get some learning in as well.
