The art of WEAVING

As usual I’m going to keep this super simple. For art, we learned all about weaving. Where it originated, the different types of weaves, what you would use each weave for and more. Then we put it into practice and did a fun craft.

Fun finishing touch option: wrap the ends and glue them down and then laminate your piece to make a placemat for dinner!

Spreading Positivity

We decided to put up some motivational artwork in our front windows to hopefully spread some cheer to neighbors as they are out on walks.

I’ve had these motivational stencils for years and I’m finally putting them to good use! The kids each chose a quote (some chose 2) and then we traced, colored and hung them up!

We hope these pictures help spread some cheer! Hang in there everyone!

Playdough + Game = FUN!

Kids love playing with playdough and they love playing games so when you add the two it makes for quite the fun experience.

We took Pictionary and used playdough in place of drawing and we got quite a kick out of how easy we thought each would be but our molds never quite came out the way we had imagined. 🀣

Some of our favorites to attempt to create were: spaghetti, hammer, dancer, horse, ribbon and book. Some of these were our favorites because we were proud of how good we did and others because we got a kick out of how hard they were.

The moment Parker guessed Andi’s “dancer”. The first guess was “a one legged girl” πŸ˜‚ I mean, I do see both.

The kids were having enough fun with it that they played until they went through all of the cards I had made. It was a definite win in our house!
