When it comes to art and your way of introducing the young ones at home to this world (unless they are naturally drawn to it) it is always better to make things interesting and entertaining for them. This method works much better than forcibly asking them to read up about or look up works of art. One of the simplest way to ensure that this happens is to take up simple but engaging projects like paper toy art, which is something that they will love to do. This could also be one of the ways to draw them out of the online world in which they seem to be increasingly drawn to. Though it would be impossible and indeed foolish to wean them away completely from the online world, it is equally important for kids to have manual dexterity and an inclination to indulge in such activities. That is, you should yourself even as a grown up take part in projects like creating attractive ornaments from paper so that this craft form does not die a premature death. Another way to ensure that your whole family has some hands on exposure to arts and crafts is to work at preparing pretty paper animals for learning and decoration purposes.
