We’ve been at home with our kids for quite some time now and maybe if you’re like me, you feel like you’re running out of things to do. I know we’ve recently had the television on more than I like, and the hotter it gets the less time we want to spend outdoors. Being indoors more means I’ve had to get creative. I’ve found ways to engage in more meaningful art activities with things we have here at home.
Art is a simple, fun activity that kids absolutely love! One simple tool that we’ve been utilizing on these sweltering summer days to keep us entertained and learning at the same time…paint!
I know, I know paint is messy. Yes. It is. But you know what? Sometimes learning is messy. Stick with me here. Creating meaningful art activities for your kids allows them (and you!) to have fun while learning at the same time.
Yes! Your child can learn academic skills through art!
“Ok, cool! My kid can learn academic skills through art. That’s great! But who will teach them? I’m not a teacher, I learned that last spring.” Good question! The answer is simple:
Exploring and Learning with Paint!
I wrote the book for you! Included in this book are four activities already laid out for you in an easily-accessible format, complete with guiding questions to help you make meaningful art with your child.
The supply lists are simple, with items you probably already have around your home (hint: you’ll finally have a use for all of those extra toilet paper rolls you have around the house). These activities are far from complicated and quick to prep (with one exception – making ice cubes!).
When I wrote this book, I used all I’ve learned in my decade of experience working with children from ages 2 through 5th grade. Each activity has a section that shows you how you can modify it for different age groups.
My passion is experiential, hands-on learning and this book puts my passion straight into your hands!
How do I get my hands on these meaningful art activities?
