Sometimes, there are days when the kids just need an activity that lets them explore their creativity and love of art. Ok, honestly, this is like everyday ...but I'm only one woman, people! Most days crayons just have to suffice:). But on those special days, this is one of my favorite activities. We've often used it as an incentive for Fox to stay on top of his chores -and it works so well!
Random, right? But for some reason, Michaels and Joann's seem to always have them ...and they're usually only $1! So, if the kids have been extra-helpful around the house (and I need to pick up some supplies), we'll stop by the craft store and pick up a few birdhouses for the kids to paint.
Fox has been big on color-mixing lately. Just look at all the colors he created in that top photo! He loves quizzing me on which color combos make which colors. Not gonna lie, it definitely makes this art teacher mama proud. And Sloane is so careful with her paints. I love watching her add color to her birdhouses ...or whatever she is painting.
Do you have a favorite summer activity for your kids? Or yourself (I'm always looking for fun, new things)?
