Sorry we haven't had any crafty posts lately. I'm preparing to go back to teaching writing at our local University this week and have been swamped. At least one of us has found time for crafts around here. I am trying to have "art time" every day with our 14-month old. This day, I was brave and gave him paint and just steped back. You can see how much fun he had:
I've also given him watercolors, stickers, and little, round stampers he can hold in his hand.
Sometimes art doesn't go so smoothly. Here, Ari DID NOT want to paint on the scrap of cardboard I gave him.
So he got rid of the cardboard and Ari was perfectly happy painting his highchair. Everything is washable, right?!
My mom made this cute little "art book" using a pop tart box, double-sided tape and heavy card stock. She bound it herself, but you can also recycle your packaged food containers and then have the notebook bound at a copy store. Ari can't wait to fill it with all kinds of doodles.
