I’ve been doing some major reorganizing around our home lately (more posts on this soon!), and, while rearranging my craft stash, I set up two drawers of one cart for Art Box items.
Now, once a week, M and I go down to our exercise / hobby room and I let him choose items from those two drawers to put in his Art Box for the week. This has really renewed his interest and enthusiasm for his Art Box!
I keep the basics – glue, scissors, paint brushes, etc. out for him, and he adds in the *fun* stuff – tubes, yarn, buttons, eyes, scrap paper, pipe cleaners, etc. He really has fun choosing things and has ended up making some very interesting and 3-dimensional art…
A collage made from a cork, pipe cleaners, tissue paper and a peanut butter lid:
A collage for Grandpa (who was absolutely delighted to receive it) made from stamps, glitter, another peanut butter lid (lol), and some scrap felt pieces that M said looked like raviolis:
And yet another collage made with paint, scrapbook paper, another lid, a craft stick, pom poms, and buttons. Whew.
A painting made with the roller, which is always a hit:
A finger painting, the first one he’s done in ages:
And, finally, a colored pasta and pipe cleaner collage:
Creativity has been running rampant around here lately, which makes for a very happy mama!
