A Child’s Education is not limited to only classrooms and books but it stretches to the fun ways they inculcate learning in their life. These include practical life skills, artistic bend, thought process, day today challenges. Did you know a child’s creativity is linked to both mental and physical health, heightened self confidence and self esteem? As Parents, it’s our duty to nurture this in our kids so they remain creative throughout their life., With this in mind, I want to present to you the Plowns app where kids create magic using colours, imagination and parents share with the help of technology.
How do You boost your Child’s Creativity?
“ALL CHILDREN ARE ARTISTS. THE PROBLEM IS HOW TO REMAIN AN ARTIST ONCE HE GROWS UP.” ~PABLO PICASSO
Every Child is creative and parents and teachers can help to make sure that these early experiences enhance their creative minds and encourage them to think towards it rather than away from it.
What You must be doing as Parents
- Do not tell your kids what to draw or paint, just hand them over the materials and let their imagination create. The process is more important than the end result.
- Don’t expect perfection, in fact always use words like “Wow’ Awesome” “Wonderful”
- Avoid pointing mistakes, i am guilty of doing that and slowly i have realised his inclination towards art is getting away.
- Give them a plain sheet of paper rather than draw it for them or give them already drawn figures.
- Let them chose the colour and decide what they want to draw. when they seek for help you must help them in getting imaginative and feel like an artist .
- Let your kids be messy , Just be ready with old clothes, mats around . don’t worry about the colours getting mixed up or spilling on the floor.
- Art is not only colours its all about being creative , so do not tell them to use only colours they can be creative with their blocks or with a newspaper too!!!
Do you think the role of the parents end here ?
Well, it’s just the beginning!!!
How would you inspire your kids ? What if i Told you there is a platform where you could showcase their talent virtually without being present physically.
Yes, i am talking about Plown app
This is an amazing place for parents, teachers,family to store their kids work . The art, craft, science projects which might just get lost in pictures stored in phone can now be shared with the world, its like their own Instagram but a creative one where other parents are also sharing and storing their kids work and getting inspired everyday worldwide!! Just like how photographers get inspired by Instagram or Pinterest. This is a similar platform but for kids and their creativity.

Benefits of using Plowns app
I have had this situation at home, my son scribbles a lot everyday initially i used to store them in a file folder then the folder size started increasing so i stored only the good ones but then they started losing colour and all or getting dirty so i bought a laminator and started laminating them but doing that was also a task sometimes i forgot and they were just lost. Then one day i saw about Plowns on facebook . I downloaded it and Sorted all his creative work there . TADA!!! now i have this saved for entire life with a dedicated app for it makes it easier ot find and remember.
You can let your kids browse the phone
Now we all browse on our phones. How much ever we restrict ourselves that we won’t use phone in front of our kids but we have that habit to check facebook, instagram and see what’s happening in other people’s life. So even kids have that curiosity of using the phone to watch cartoon so instead of letting them watch that you can hand them with the Plowns app and now they are open to a world of creativity to have new ideas and get inspired everyday.
Inspire and Get Inspired!!
The Painting that inspired him to create one
The other day my son was like “Mumma, i dun want to draw anything i am bored” , I just handed him with the plowns platform, he started scrolling down the pictures and suddenly he was like “Mama see how beautiful this is!! Can i draw this” .
I was amazed to see his enthusiasm.
The same boy who was not in the mood to even colour and few moments back , wants to now draw an entire scenery on his own.
Did you see what effect art has on kids , and especially the one created by other kids!!!
Find an inspiration whenever you login, this amazing clock is a beautiful DIY to teach your kids about time
In today’s world, every body is busy and with working parents school projects have become a nightmare. especially the idea of what to make. Now no more with category wise segregated data you can easily browse the sections and find out some interesting work by other kids and then create some amazing fantastic work within no time.
During Diwali, we look for rangoli designs here and there. What if we had a complete section dedicated for it where the world is sharing their rangoli designs. Now this diwali when i create my flower rangoli you know where to find what i made.
The moment we uploaded the pictures , appreciation started pouring in!!!
Moment we uploaded the picture, we started getting so many stars
How do you encourage your kids by telling some nice words like “Fantastic job, great work” right!!!
What if the entire world starts doing that for them imagine the kind of boost it will provide to their confidence . Well, that happened to my son.
The other day he drew a boat and was not happy with it, i told him it’s amazing but he now knows that mama tells amazing for all his work.
So i uploaded it on Plowns app and the next day when i saw so many comments and stars which when i showed him a beautiful smile ran on his face that cannot be described in words. He was like mumma you were right this is really good!!!
so our kids sometimes need that boost from others and this is the right place to get that!!!
Plowns also holds simple contests everyday like Caption challenge, also sending out some tips and motivational quotes!!!
This is an amazing innovation for kids and parents. We can now proudly share the efforts shown by our kids, get appreciated for that and inspired by what others are doing. Sometimes we hit a plateau and cannot think of an idea and this can be an amazing place to get find some nice creative ones.
My baby had made his first mothers day card and i had stored it properly but now i don’t remember where, even the picture i clicked is lost somewhere and cannot find among the 141256 photos of him. I wish plowns was available then and we would have loved to share that with the world and have it with us forever
