Toilet Paper Tube Flower Prints

April showers bring May flowers! We have had exactly ONE spring shower so far, but I’ll take it! Spring started late for us this year and I can’t wait for flowers and green grass to spring up all around us. Until we get some more showers, though, we are working on some spring-inspired art! See…

Rainy Day Art Activity

Is it spring yet?? Quite honestly, I am done with snow and ready to embrace all the spring showers! My kids love puddle jumping, and wet pant hems are much better than below freezing temps and being stuck indoors all day. Let’s get started with rainy day activities!

Football Art Activity

Who else plans on sitting at the kids’ table during the big game today? Just me? I’m cool with that. I am NOT a football fan. I would much rather be sitting with the kid doing arts and crafts than watching the game. Today I was struck with some very last-minute inspiration when I saw…

Kid-Made Thank You Cards

I also love pumpkins for another reason (besides the delicious food it provides). I love pumpkins because they are the non-scary component of…

Painting with Mini Pumpkins

What do you do with mini pumpkins? At the grocery store I came across these cute mini pumpkins. I usually pass them by and just go for the bigger, carvable pumpkins. I mean what are mini pumpkins for other than decor? Can you even carve them? I thought and thought and realized that at 2…

Painting with Toy Kitchen Tools

Anyone else love a good process art activity? We do! Process art is my favorite because it allows my kids to be creative and enjoy the process of creating art (versus being fixated on a final product). When you have one child who is a perfectionist (will melt down if his work doesn’t look exactly…
