This is an old photo. I was still pregnant with our littlest when these were taken. We were making him gifts 🙂
Recently I put together a random art bin for the kids to use anytime. It defiantly needs to be organized better, but for now it is working wonderfully. I just put some supplies I don’t mind them using anytime, including some scraps and even recyclables.
I highly recommend it.
We made these little coloring pages/paper dolls for the kids in our homeschool group. It was so fun I thought I’d share. Feel free to download these to give out to your valentines 🙂

I hope to make a few as gifts soon.

I really had to try it. This was very therapeutic, I highly recommend trying it yourself.
This one looks creepy, but it is the blank faces after I cleaned to paint off with Acetone.
We called this painting with crystals, because that is what it looks like! We stirred Epsom salts to a little warm water until dissolved and then mixed in water color paints.
We painted as we normally do. When the paintings were dry, little crystals were sparkling up at us. The crystals were bigger on the places the paint on thickest.
