Het stimuleren van een kinderbrein door middel van speelgoed is nuttig bewezen voor vaardigheden op latere leeftijden.
Instinctief worden ouders aangetrokken tot educatief speelgoed. De meeste ouders willen erg graag dat hun kinderen overal van leren. Zij zien speelgoed met een educatief doel als een goed middel om dit te bereiken. Het is immers zo dat kinderen van spelen houden, het zit in hun natuur. Ouders hoeven niet te zeuren om hun kinderen aan het spelen te krijgen, maar kinderen hebben dan wel aanmoediging nodig om te gaan zitten en leren. Stimulatie via spelen is inderdaad een goede manier om kinderen nieuwe vaardigheden aan te leren. Read more
2012 is the 100th anniversary of the birth of, Erich Stegmann, the founder of the Association of Mouth and Foot Painting Artists (AMFPA) and one of the most remarkable and inspiring artists of the last century. To mark this milestone, Danish member artist, Ann Lund, will travel to the UK later this month to join member artist, Tom Yendell , to talk about the founder’s life and vision to the British media. Erich Stegmann formed the AMFPA in 1957 and from its small beginnings it has grown into an inspiring international organisation with more than 802 artist members in over 76 countries worldwide.
Born in Germany in 1912, Erich contracted polio at the age of two which resulted in him permanently losing the use of his hands as well as limiting his ability to walk. However, through sheer determination he taught himself to write and later to paint by mouth. By the time he was in his early twenties, he had become a highly accomplished artist and after years of selling his self-designed cards and prints at marketplaces in his native Germany, in 1956 he set up the Association of Mouth and Foot Painting Artists, an international group of artists, who through various disabilities, were like him, unable to use their hands to paint.
