Hang up your beautiful mosaic to brighten any space!

Earth Day Art

Happy belated Earth Day!  Here is a fun and easy way to make Earth with your kids....props to my co-worker Abby!
All you need is coffee filters and watercolors.  It is also a great way to discuss the colors of the world seen from afar.

Recycled Can Planters: Earth Day Project

During our recycling unit, we reused cans to plant marigolds.  It was a time for the kids to get messy and learn about planting.
I told the kids the only rule was for them to get messy, so they had to scoop out the dirt!
Give them a few seeds.  This is also a great time to discuss how different seeds look.
Time to get dirty!  Have them scoop dirt with their hands to cover the seeds.

Make sure to water them good!

Twirl 3-D Art

This is an art activity that I started to look one way, but the process made it so much better.  It truly shows you how allowing the kids to create the way they want will make unbelievable results!

Start with: strips of construction paper, glue, and card stock

Have them start gluing the strips on the paper.  

I showed them how to make twirls with a pencil and glue it in 3-D way.

Here are some of the wonderful masterpieces that were created!

I created this chalkboard quote for all of you in love as well:
