Arts As well as Ideas: A Intro
The wordplay is “arts and crafts”. When I first heard that, I thought it was referring to people who doodle or create things on paper. But it’s actually a term used by children to express their creativity, their feelings, and other things they feel strongly about. It is usually used in a non-judgmental way. Arts and Crafts was originally meant to express real words rather than just crayon-making, as many learned from his mother, who was an arts and crafts teacher.
“Art and crafts” have evolved into many different forms to accommodate different styles of play and expression. In the 1940’s it became a popular national pastime, encouraging creativity and socialization in America. Today, it is still fun and can be taken out to play, much like mystman12’s toy tiger, which he plays with his friends. Many crafters and arts enthusiasts consider this healthy outlet of free expression. “Art and crafts” are also a great activity for families with small children.
Bully, on the other hand, is an arts and crafts character with his own show, telling stories, and doing magic tricks. He represents the protagonist. Artic crafters and writers are often bullied because they have a need to control where they go and what they do and often portray themselves as victims of unfairness. In other words, they have a need to be “right”, but when their “right” is challenged, they use their imagination and creative skills to create outrageous plots to justify their bullying.
When you use bullying as a theme in your child’s playtime, you’re giving him a negative outlet for his anger. He’s channeling all that pent up frustration and energy into something productive – but, unfortunately, not all of it is constructive. Imagine the havoc it could wreak if all his energies were directed toward some constructive purpose. It would most likely lead to creativity and learning. The archive warnings apply here too: You don’t want your child playing with someone who fantasizes or who acts on their worst fantasies, especially if it interferes with playtime.
In many ways, bullies are much smarter than their victims. While they may not know how to express their anger properly, they do recognize certain social cues. If you’ve ever observed a child getting into trouble, you’ll notice that there’s a pattern to what they are doing. They will tend to get into fights when they feel slighted or when someone is insulting them. But, when you teach a child how to express their anger in play, instead of physically hurting the other person or getting into trouble, the child learns how to act appropriately in social situations, which strengthens his social skills and helps him to develop a positive self-image.
If you want to be sure that your elementary school students learn to express themselves creatively in a play, try to find a freeform class that they can participate in. There are many available through local community colleges or your local Waldorf schools. I know that my daughter loves taking her friends to the craft store and we have a blast going through the pages of the freeform books with them. She also loves to find crafts that she can make and giving them to her friends as gifts.
Now that you’ve worked with your child’s giftedness in the arts and crafts arena, you need to take the time to expose him to other kinds of creative materials as well. Waldorf schools often provide opportunities for physical fitness activities, such as Tai Chi or Pilates. This is a good place to start because these classes can help develop muscular strength as well as coordination. Of course, these activities should not replace sports or dance, but they can enhance them. And if your child seems to be more interested in drama or the circus, consider checking out the local drama club to see what opportunities they have for his or her freeform skills. You can also check out the local junior high school plays to get an idea of what types of shows and plays interest your protagonist.
Overall, there are several things that you can do to make sure that your child is exposed to as many different kinds of artistic experiences as possible. If he or she is starting at the age when most kids are starting out, you will need to give him or her some time to get acquainted with art and crafts before you expect him or her to become human. But if you give your creative and talented child regular playtime, you will give him or her a head start toward becoming an artist in the long run.
