My 5 year old and I recently attended the Mommy & Me turkey mug class. We had a blast and can’t wait to sign up for the December class, where we’ll be making fingerprint ornaments! The classes are perfect for preschoolers and a lot of the techniques used are easy enough for them to do with minimal help. I highly recommend signing up for a class! Here are my 5 reasons to take Mommy & Me classes at As You Wish.
1. Quality Time
My son and I try to do monthly painting dates at As You Wish, just the two of us. It’s something we both look forward to and he enjoys the one on one attention. The Mommy and Me classes are a great way to bond!
2. Learn New Techniques
We’ve taken a couple As You Wish classes and I love that the instructors introduce new brushes and painting techniques. During the turkey mug class, we learned how to speckle paint over our mug using a toothbrush and how to make dots using a pencil eraser.
3. Build Important Skills
Besides just being fun, painting can help with fine motor skills and writing. Fostering creativity in children can also be a therapeutic outlet and boost self-esteem.
4. No Clean Up Required
So many parents tell me that they’d be more artsy with their children if it wasn’t so messy. As You Wish provides aprons and does all the clean up for you!
5. Take Home a Masterpiece
After your piece is fired in the kiln, you get to take home a one of a kind masterpiece. We have a special shelf with all our pottery pieces and my son is reminded of the fun memories we’ve made at As You Wish.
