I am delighted to share my love of art with my children as we make artistic exploration a priority in our homeschool. Please join me each Friday as I post the latest addition to our art journals. I share easy ideas to incorporate art into your family culture.
You don't need to be a homeschooling family to spend time making art together!
Elijah was terrorizing the schoolroom while we tried to work. Ellie and Ethan were bickering. Ethan wanted nothing to do with the the project. Usually when we get started he gets into it, but not this time. He whined and complained the whole time. But, we finished and he moved on and I like to think it brightened his day, at least a little.
This was a simple project (see excuses above). I grabbed some colored tissue paper, and paintbrushes, thinned some Elmer's glue and we were on our way.
colored tissue paper, cut or ripped into squares
Elmer's glue thinned with water (1/3 water: 2/3 glue) or modpodge, if you have any
Paintbrushes for spreading the glue
