Family Art..

I somehow ended up on a GREAT blog tonight- the artful parent. I’ve been looking for some fun things to do with Maddie on the Tuesdays and Thursdays she is home together and doesn’t have school.  For someone supposedly so “creative” I have such a hard time coming up with craft activities for her.  And Maddie LOVES her craft activities- her favorite thing to do is drawer pictures and paint.  There are a TON of really great ideas on the artful parent, and plenty of links to other blogs/sites with fun crafting ideas.

I picked up a bunch of watercolors and paints on discount school supply. An excellent, and super affordable, resource for all things arts/crafts for kids!  I’ve never heard of watercolor in a tube- but am excited to give them a go around with Maddie- I even invested in some different “brushes” and good watercolor paper!!!

I’ll let you know how it goes, and will hopefully have the foresight to take photos so I can post about it here and maybe inspire you all to get more crafty with your own little ones (or, heck, yourselves).
