In the Art Box last week: Easter cardstock shapes, glitter, pom-poms, buttons, markers, paints, glue, glitter pens, foam, watercolor paints, various papers, dot painters, markers.
M saw the glitter right away and was beside himself with joy. Why does something super-fun have to equal super-messy? We are still finding glitter everywhere. I put the Easter shapes on an old pan to lessen the mess (or so I thought), and he started with the glue and glitterized them. :)
I had included other things that I hoped he would also use to decorate these, but he was only interested in the glitter. As you can see, one lucky bunny did get a pom-pom tail. :) I punched holes in these and made a garland for his bedroom door:
I found a pack of small glitter pens in the Target dollar spot a few weeks ago and he loves them. (I secretly can’t wait till he’s a teenager and I can tell his girlfriends how he loves sparkly, pretty things. Hee hee.) An added bonus – they are scented! Mmmm… very yummy! He made very detailed pictures and every little thing was intentional and had a name. I’m really finding this drawing phase quite interesting. There were around 10 papers, all very similar to this one:
And here’s an easel drawing… a spider web!
He loves cutting foam, but he knows tiny pieces of it lying around drive me nuts, so he half-heartedly made these collages:
He found a rock outside one day and had to paint it (it’s on wax paper):
He’s taken to painting pictures from coloring books lately. I hope this doesn’t mean the end of his free-art paintings that I just adore! He was very proud of these though:
Halfway through the week I added small trucks and some dinosaurs to his box and he loved using them to make tracks:
