I get a newsletter every week from the Artful Parent. The ideas are always easy, high-interest and truly engaging. I do have to admit that this week's project was a little scary. She had us heat a baking sheet in a 350 degree oven, place it on a towel and then have the kids color on paper on THE HOT BAKING PAN! The crayon melts, creating saturated color.
We did have a long snowy day ahead of us though, so at this point in a Western NY winter I may have tried a Piranha Pool Party to kill some time.
It turned out to be a really fun project. The twins draw a lot, so one day when they were out sledding, I sewed a bunch of tiny pictures into a little banner.
The felt board is a vintage Amvets find. The twins love it.
Peg dolls are the current art obsession. Every day I am asked for a specific wooden blank or 2 to add to a wooden family or neighborhood.
So, 6 is the age when the urge to create just explodes. In this house at least. Happy looonnnngggg Winter.
