I think this is going to be the summer of 3-dimensional art for us. We're making paper mache bowls and have plans for wood scrap sculptures, mask making, and some clay work.
Yesterday, when Justin and Nathan were over for the morning, we painted some sturdy cardboard boxes with tempera paint.
Later, Maia said hers was a house for her little dolls and instructed me on window and door placement as I cut them out with an x-acto knife. She added one of the empty thread spools (that they'd been using for stamping) as a chimney.
Wouldn't it be neat to have a village of these colorful houses?
