In the art box last week: chalk and black paper, black “scratch art” ornaments, stickers, cardboard spools (from ribbon), foam Christmas stickers, paint, scissors (regular and scalloped shaped), various papers, feathers, Christmas ribbon, cotton balls, glue, colored pencils.
Over the summer M was really into making collages, but for some reason he just hasn’t been interested lately. I was happy to see the interest in collages flair up again, briefly, when he saw the pretty gold Christmas ribbon. He cut it and used the scallop scrapbook scissors to cut some green paper and then, heavy on the glue, put it on black paper with some foam stickers.
Daddy came home while M was finishing this up and M could not be bothered with a kiss. He said, “I’m decorating for Christmas, Daddy!!” :)
He was very, very interested in the cardboard ribbon spools, and decided to see what kind of “tracks” they would make. He asked for a saucer of red and blue paint and got busy: Finished painting: He was super-proud of this one, and it’s fun to see him experiment with things on his own.
Then he cut some paper into very small pieces and wanted to make a rainbow. There was half a paper plate in the box, so I used that and drew some lines for him. He got halfway through and stopped:
He really enjoyed the scratch art ornaments I found for him at Michael’s. He had never done this before and thought it was really cool. :) These will hang on our tree, when we get around to actually putting it up!
And then, it was back to painting. That’s my boy. Have you seen enough of M’s paintings yet? If so, you’ll want to skip the rest of this, hee hee. Here we go:
Let’s see what your kiddos did! I love looking at all their fun art. :) Link up below!
Have a beautiful day! :)
