Painting with toy cars is a fun way to get preschoolers engaged in art. It is easy to set up and uses easy-to-find supplies. Painter’s tape is used to block off parts to the card so that when it is removed you are left with crisp lines that make the abstract painting look super professional.
Whether you make a card, a journal, or just a painting, this craft is sure to get little ones creating and leave you with a nice piece of abstract art.
Bookbinding is a fun and functional art form that has so many variations to explore. Making a small simple book is a great way to dip your feet into the world of bookbinding in a super-easy way that even kids can enjoy.
It’s getting to be that time of year again. Even very young children can feel the hectic excitement in the air and anticipate the approaching change to their schedules. It can be a scary experience, especially for kids just starting school, but it can also be exciting and fun. As you’re navigating back to school shopping for school supplies and clothes you can also help your kids prepare for the new school year with crafts, activities and imaginative play!
If you haven’t made a time capsule with the family yet, the end of summer and start of a new school year is a great time to do so. Encourage the kids to choose trinkets from the summer, photos and notes about yourself (favorite colors, best friends, new friends, goals for the school year, favorite joke, etc.) These will be so much fun to open next year (or at the time that you choose).
