NOT Painting with Tennis Balls

  This was going to be a post about our experience painting with tennis balls. But there's not much to say, because we never got very far. 

     I put some paint on a paper plate and Kay rolled the tennis ball in it, then bounced it hard onto the paper I'd placed on the ground. She bounced it one more time, then said, "It makes an ugly design." Then, "Can I paint with my feet?" Does all of our painting projects have to devolve into body painting? Apparently. …

Sandy Art

  I found some leftover colored sand, and I left it up to Kay to decide what to do with it. She had an answer right away, "We could put glue on the paper and make pictures." Okay, works for me. I got the glue and paper, she carried the sand and we brought everything outside. (This definitely seemed like one of those 'outdoor crafts.') She started by mixing all the colors together, making a less-than-attractive combination, but the glitter that was also included at least made it sparkly. She…

I'm Not Done Yet...

“Go into the process of creating with a big healthy dose of uncertainty and be prepared to adjust as necessary.”



I read the above quote in a blog the other night before I went to bed and it reminded me about a young boy I had met earlier that afternoon while volunteering at the Building for Kids. For those of you who don’t know the Building for kids, it is a child centered museum. In this museum is a room called “the DaVinci Room,” which is a place where budding artists can get… Continue

Learn How to Keep Your Toddler’s Artwork off of the Walls and Furniture

A few weeks ago, my husband asked me if I needed anything from the store.  I asked him if he would pick up my youngest son a coloring book because he kept grabbing my pen from me when I wasn’t watching and kept telling me that he wanted to draw.  I took the pen away from him and he was devastated, even though…

10 Great Interactive Creative Books

 

Today I'd like to offer up some suggestions for interactive books/journals for your kids. Only you'll find it difficult to keep your hands off of these bad boys, because they are so much more than coloring books. They're more like personal creativity trainers between two covers, as they are full of inspiration, fun, creative direction, and ways to make art in a non-threatening, playful way. Great for kids, but what adult doesn't need a little more of this in their lives,…

For a man, fatherhood can be one of the most blissful events in his life. That small bundle of joy that comes into his life not only brings with it great pleasures, but also adds a whole new dimension. While mothers are initially given all the special attention, the joy and the sacrifice of a father mostly goes unnoticed. So, to pay homage to all the men who are fathers or father figures, here is a Father’s Day gift guide flush of…
