i love doing art with my kids! it's very relaxing to me and i love giving my kids the chance to be creative. i think it is important to foster creativity in the home. i may not do a lot of other things with my kids, but this is one thing i'm very passionate about.
i found this book at my library...Art Lab for Little Kids. it's a great book to teach little kids about art. there are 50 activities in the book, so if you lack ideas, no worries, they're all planned out for you.
this was our first art project out of the book...buttermilk chalk paint.
my kids loved dipping the chalk in the buttermilk. it makes the chalk turn creamy instead of dusty.
