I just found this new site, Kidmade, through one of my favorite children's art blogs, Camp Creek Press. Both Camp Creek Press and Kidmade are for children who are a little older than my daughter, however they are both well worth checking out even if your child is still young. Kidmade says that they are going to have regularÂ creative "challenges" for children (this month's is to create a self portrait). You can send themÂ a photo of the completed challenge with a blurb written by the child (or dictated to you). Sounds like a fun and cooperative way for your children to share their artwork and other projects!
Here are some water sponge toys that I found on Make and Takes. They look like they would be a lot of fun in the bath, pool,Â OR (since I filter the world through my interest in art) for creating interesting paintings!
Three Sneaky Bugs has a great tutorial for building your own felt board–something I want to try soon–and another post about adding flowers.
And, Gwyn at My Kids Art posted about doing cool string rubbings with her sons. I haven't tried rubbings with Maia yet, but have been thinking about it.
Happy Friday and Happy Creating!
