So A has been requesting to paint lately. So we took a trip to Michael’s and grabbed some supplies as ours were running out. We ended up finding a multi-pack deal on some square canvases. And my wheels started turning. With a half formed idea in my head we got to work! Continue reading

This is Spring break for our County. So it means it is a good time to host another event.
Today was Butterfly Chromatography. Markers are made up of different colors. when you put them on some paper and have water travel up the paper, the different colors separate.
We started off with the story Gotta Go Gotta Go! I love seeing how excited and engaged the kids are!
A decided that she wanted to try painting with jelly beans. So, we got some mixed media paper, dropped different colored jelly beans into containers, added some water and tried it. The conclusion, it did not paint any color. But in the process we talked about how do we get the color to appear faster.
A few weeks ago we meet up with some friends for a play date & tie dying. We let the girls shake the dye, decide how to twist/ wrap, & then squirt the dye.
We even added some sand from the sandbox to see what happened. (Results: no change).

This is the other gift I made for our friends who have recently moved away. (They had an 8 hour flight, so it was something they could play with).
Along with moving away from all of the people they knew, they had to leave their dog. (At least she got to go with family). So I made them a little puzzle (4×6) of their dog. 🙂
I own some computer printable jigsaw paper by Puzzle Clonzz. Here is an Amazon link.
So some of our good friends are moving to Amsterdam, tomorrow. So I made them a couple little things for the plane ride & their new home.
This is something I learned about in a class I took and was glad for the chance to try it out.
This one is a Flip Lenticular. You look at it one way & it is 1 picture, then look at a different way (or tilt the picture) and it changes to a different one.
Today Either found some objects & asked if she could use them. So, I grabbed a few more things and let her go to town. The only real direction I gave was saying what to try first.
Started off with stamps, which always turns to her using the stamp pad as a wide marker. Then used some stickers and foam beads. I like how she decided to stack items on top of each other.
SKILLS: Art, Creativity, Confidence, Fine Motor Skills, Not One Correct Way
