During the first three years, young children develop their artistic skills by having fun experimenting and learning all the wonderful things they can do. A When babies engage in creative art, it is a whole body experience. They often are as interested in grasping, chewing, pounding and squishing as they are in trying to actually create something. Even at this age, the sheer exploration is worthwhile for children development. Safety is an important concern at this age, and adult supervision is critical, hence always use child friendly material which can allow them to explore without any restrictions.
