Art Tips:

  1. On a nice day, consider taking your paper and paint outside and paint with leaves and stamp with rocks and other found objects. Nature makes everything even more fun!
  2. Reuse Your art work! My kids create a lot of art. I cut their work and fold to make handmade birthday cards out of them for parties!
  3. Painting at this scale is better with an apron. We didn’t think to put them on and had some regret. Grab a pen&thimble apron today and add your kid’s name to it too!
