In the Art Box last week: new truck stamps, glitter glue, fun scrapbook scissors (scallop and zig-zag), glitter snowflake stickers, sports stickers, construction paper and newsprint, watercolor paints, scrap paper and fun foam.
M was really into his stamps and stickers this time around and made me several stamp and sticker collages; here’s a couple:
He painted with his watercolors a little bit…
Interestingly, he was not so much into painting last week. Maybe he was still going through some sort of paint-with-water coloring book withdrawal?? I have a feeling any other kind of painting will not measure up to the paint-with-water book experience for a while. Grrr…
Hands down, his favorite was cutting with my scrapbook scissors (I make sure they aren’t sharp, testing them on my own fingers!). He cut piles upon piles of paper but was not interested in doing anything with it, except adding to the pile. His favorite thing to cut? Fun foam of course! I have to admit I do enjoy cutting it too – scissors just glide through it, like butter! :) So, does anyone need a box of teeny-tiny pieces of foam and various other papers? Anyone? Or a kid with a goofy smile? :)
Oh wait, I’m keeping him!
Link up your kid’s self-directed artwork below - I love seeing them!
Have a beautiful day! :)
