Painting with Sandals

{For your convenience, this post may contain affiliate links} I know how silly this looks. I mean, we have paintbrushes, paint, and paper, so why in the world would we paint with sandals?!? Because it is So. Much. Fun. Really! The soles of shoes have such great texture and variety that they make great stamps…

Feather Painting

{For your convenience, this post may contain affiliate links}  I love doing activities based on books. A while back I saw a blog post revolved around the book  Birds by Kevin Henkes. The post had some simple and fun ideas based on the book, but the one that stood out to me was feather painting!…

A sensory bin to explore Starry Night!

Starry Night Inspired Sensory Bin

{For your convenience, this post may contain affiliate links}  I am no art major. I took a few art appreciation classes in college and enjoy going to art museums (when my husband agrees to accompany me!) When I do appreciate art, I try to be specific about the elements of the art that I am…

Small Scale Art

{For your convenience, this post may contain affiliate links} We love process art. Materials are presented with no required “outcome” or result. It is quite opposite of crafts. It allows creativity to flow and art to be created organically. However, sometimes we can start process art and it is a bit overwhelming. A large, blank,…

Fly Swatter Painting

{For your convenience, this post may contain affiliate links}  Flies are a terrible nuisance, but I’m not a big fan of using fly swatters either (I can’t stand the thought of actually killing the pests myself. Hubby is more than welcome to do that job for me!) When I try getting rid of flies, I…

Monster Art and Math Activity

{For your convenience, this post may contain affiliate links} I can be pretty neglectful when it comes to doing math activities with the kids. At the end of the day I look at my lesson plans (just a check list to keep me intentional about covering different topics throughout our week), and I noticed I…

Sensory Name Recognition Activity

{For your convenience, this post may contain affiliate links} A few days ago my boys unraveled nearly an entire roll of tinfoil. I was about to throw it away when I decided to instead find clever ways to re-use it (see what our first activity was over on Munchkins and Moms Instagram page). I still had…

Green Process Art

{For your convenience, this post may contain affiliate links} We’ve been taking a lot more library trips lately, which in turn is inspiring a whole lot of activities based on books. Our latest was based on the Caldecott Honor book Green by Laura Vaccaro Seeger. Love this book. Just love it. If you’re looking for…

“Press Here” Art Activity

{For your convenience, this post may contain affiliate links} Have you read the book Press Here by Herve Tullet? It’s a super fun book that’s all interactive for the kids. My two year old loves the book (I also add in sound effects as we press the “buttons.” It cracks him up!) This activity was all…

Rainy day? Set up a quick art project for your kids! This is a great activity to do with the preschoolers in spring.

Rainy Day Window Art

{For your convenience, this post contains affiliate links} The last couple days have left us cooped up indoors because of the rain. I’ll admit, I’m not the biggest fan of rainy days. The kids are cooped up in the house as opposed to playing in the yard most of the day. That kind of drives…
