Wordless Wednesday: Art class

Recent educational budget cuts haven't yet affected our homeschool's art possibilities…

Good thing, since the boys love their art projects.

Alrik's favorite are these new dot paint sticks.

Mikko's a fan, too.

Alrik also loves markers.

Especially black markers. He's so goth.

toddler gluing - crafts art
"Goo-goo-goo!" is also a favorite.

Ah, nice and goopy for collages!

Sometimes the art projects are entirely self-directed …

And sometimes the art supplies get new uses,
like writing answers to a puzzle book on arms!

Perfectly artsy.



I encourage you to enter my giveaways for three $100 CVS gift cards: "Staying well during sick days," "7 ways to turn sick days into fun days," & "Fluffy rainbow clouds of joy on a sick day." They're close soon, on March 31 (US). We could all use some cold & flu tips (plus extra spending money!) to help us through this sniffly season, right?

You'll also love the charming photos of Signing over at Natural Parents Network. A young Mikko is showing off his signing skills!

This looks like so much fun! I don't know how we would have gotten through the super snowy winter here without art projects!

My 7 year old still uses her body like a canvas. Art is fun!

The weather here is still awful, so we are getting through a lot of paper, glue, glitter, stickers, paint and play dough. I think we would go entirely crazy if we couldn't make lots of artistic messes and creations! I want to try marbling with the kids, but it involves turpentine/white spirits and I don't know if there is a safe alternative, will have to go and look up online! Lovely pictures! :)

I am really surprised either one of them have markers all over them! ;) Little E colored herself with a pen last week. So fun....;)

Love, love, LOVE crafts! Your boys are so creative! I totally love that you are letting them discover art supplies, write on their arms, use glue, and just have fun! A lot of the Moms I work with are VERY picky about that..and I'm just like, c'mon guys, we all know it's just going to get all over them, anyway..why fight it? Haha. I think that being messy is part of being a kid...this movement to clean and disinfect EVERYTHING sometimes surprises me. And glue..oh, my! When I do projects with my kiddos that I work with, glue and markers are everywhere!! But that's part of the fun : ) Glad to see you and your kiddos are staying creative! Keep being awesome!

What a FUN mess! :) Like you, I'm not afraid to let the kiddos get messy. It's great for their sensory development!
Thanks for the idea for the WW post :)
