There’s no photo of the art box this week. I had *someone* standing beside me waiting, not-very-patiently, for me to fill it up. It had all the usual stuff, plus some little sparkly gel pens from Target’s dollar spot, and a rock.
The rock was the cause of all the excitement surrounding the filling of the art box. He found this rock last summer and gave it to me (I know, I’m a lucky girl!), and it’s been sitting on the kitchen windowsill ever since. Someone (if it was your child, let me know!) made some pet rocks for The Art Box not long ago, and it looked like a lot of fun. M definitely agreed.
Then he made a pretty picture with his gel pens. You can’t see it very well here, but it’s very sparkly. And we discovered that each one smells like a fruit! The yummiest is the purple – it smells like grapes. :)
He painted a picture for Daddy:
One for Mommy that was made with his little spiky balls from Walmart:
And one for “all of us” (including M):
We are still enjoying the art box, although some weeks are more interesting than others. I find that if we have a slow week where he’s not feeling artsy, the following week he more than makes up for it.
If your child did any self-directed art, link it up below! I love seeing all their creations, and all the great supply ideas you moms come up with!
Have a beautiful day! :)
