PARENTS URGED TO SPUR CREATIVITY

AS PART OF the Turn a Page, Touch a Mind campaign, the Kansas Health Foundation urges adults to read, sing, rhyme, draw and tell stories to children. Some tips:

- Keep paper and crayons within easy reach of your child.

- Set up an easel for quick access to painting and drawing.

- Color on restaurant place mats.

- Use chalk on the driveway or sidewalk.

- Draw pictures in the sandbox.

- Use bathtub paints during bath time.

- Use washable markers in case art ends up on the wall.
