Fun with Art

Art projects are one of my boy’s favorite things to do. Last week we had a lot of fun reading the book Mirette on the High Wire  using Five in a Row and looked at a book of old circus posters so decided to paint our own posters. I wasn’t sure how well it would work out but the boys loved it! They each had their own fun idea and got right to work. I helped Pete and Re-Pete with their lettering and mixing paint colors but other than that they spent the afternoon painting. I really enjoyed watching their individuality shine through. The end result was wonderful!

This week we had an art class that a few homeschool-Moms from church and I take turns teaching. We often go through the book How to Teach Art to Children but take a break now and again. It was my turn to teach so I found the simple project of tie-dying baby wipes and coffee filters. It was fun to see how everyone had a unique design. The kids all enjoyed this and could have spent the day just coloring -- I could have too!

Thank you for commenting on my blog! I look at your blog and feel so encouraged! I too, love art and baking with my children. Elizabeth George is one of my favorties, and No Greater Joy has been an encouragement in many ways over the years. I read over your blog was blessed. Our Valentines day was also "red," including a heart shaped pizza, red velvet cake and candy cups. We talked and focused on the love of Jesus, but we have a whole lot of family fun on holdiays. Your German soup sounds so much like my Swedish fruit soup htat I make around Christmas time. Ok, well, I could go on and on....maybe I will e-mail you about our curriculum. :0) God bless, and thanks for the encouragement!! Melissa By the way, your family seems so wonderfully sweet.
