Emma decided this week that she wanted to make an Easter book. She picked out “Easter colors”, and set to work drawing things that she loves and is grateful for.
We bound it together using pipe cleaners – my favorite way to quickly bind kid books. You just punch a few holes, stick the pipe cleaners through, and twist. Faster than yarn, and I find that they give more structure, as well.
Emma took her book to school for Show & Tell this week. It’s the second time she’s brought something she made, and I’m loving this trend!
It’s also very appropriate to bring it to school, because the cover especially featured sponge painting – a technique she discovered at her art class in school, and brought home! She adapted the technique to make a couple of pictures to hang on the wall as well:
I am particularly fond of this very cheerful flower!
What art techniques are your kids loving right now?
