1. Play your cards right
Make a special picture or greeting card for a friend or family member. Making art lets children make their own decisions about where to put things and what to emphasise, which is really empowering. Ask your little one about what they’ve created. See if they can explain their decisions back to you – it’ll give you a real sense of what’s important to them right now.
