Children love to get dirty, and if they see a smiling mother's face that allows it, happiness is even greater. Running on puddles full of mud, smudging uneaten yogurt on the table are just examples of what children love to do. Such sticking, rubbing or smudging is not a mere childhood malice, but a desire to explore the surrounding world. Allowing the child to get dirty while even painting with their fingers (unfortunately, often at the expense of clothes), we will get an expressively made image, we will observe great joy on the child's face, but also we will ensure its proper development. So: it's worth it!

Educator R. F. Show came up with a 10 finger painting therapy method for working with problem children. The method helps overcome anxiety, strengthens faith in one's own strength and frees children from inhibitions who are shy and need to express their feelings.

The therapy consists of providing the child with a comfortable place and painting tools - special paints placed in containers so that the child can freely immerse the whole hand in them and a large sheet of paper. The child should have properly secured clothing so that during the whole therapy process it does not have to control in any way whether it gets dirty.

Belongs choose the topic of work, which child to focus on, but not suggest what exactly it should be. If a child is reluctant to get his hands dirty, they should be gently encouraged to do so, e.g. dip their hands in the paint with the child or only dip their hands in the paint and ask the child to collect it from our hands.

The child can paint as he wants it is also advisable mixing colors, patting, smudging or rubbing - it all depends on the child's desire. While playing, do not reprimand the child, mock or command, freedom in creation is important. After the game, you need to praise the child for the masterpiece created and ask a few questions, as shown in the picture, how the child felt when he was painting, or had a nice time.

How to paint with your child at home?

When we decide to play with finger painting, remember to properly protect not only the child's clothes or the table on which he is painting, but also the places around. The paint can spray on the wall, carpet or sofa, so it's better to protect everything with newspapers or foil.
