In the Art Box last week: lots of colored paper, watercolor paper (in the back with a paperclip on it), watercolor paints, watercolor pencils, markers, glue, glitter glue, scissors, a small container with little goodies in it for collaging (lower left), a pinecone, stickers, and cardboard ribbon spools.
I’ve been trying to find a good way to keep M’s art supplies organized, and found this little utensil carousel at Target. It’s great for markers, pencils, scissors, glue, etc. But, the picture looks a little crowded, doesn’t it? Maybe next week I’ll set everything out all nice and pretty before I take the picture. Didn’t you know I have all the time in the world to do things like that? ;) Okay, maybe not. We’ll see. ;)
Despite the plethora of good art supplies, not much art was done. We’ve had a run of summer-like days this fall (I guess to make up for the fall-like days we had in summer), and much of our time was spent outside. Some beautiful items did make their way into nature collages, but those are for a post later this week.
However, despite the beautiful weather, M can’t resist anything sparkly. Once he saw the glitter glue and some sparkly bug stickers he had to take time out from his outdoor play to put a couple of things together.
A glitter glue, sticker collage:
And whatever this is, with glitter foam pieces (more sparkles!):
That was it. Just some quick bling and then back to jumping in the leaves.
I did find time to put up some art strings in our home. Here’s one:
We’ve got 4 of them up in a variety of places – stairwell, family room, bedroom. My (unspoken to M) hope is that I can s l o w l y start taking down a few pieces of art that he’s just randomly taped on the walls and move them onto the art strings, and eventually only have M’s art on the strings except for a few very special things that we’ll leave in the kitchen, perhaps in frames. That’s the plan, anyway.
If you have a kid's art post, link it up below! Be sure to link back here somewhere in your post.
Have a beautiful day! :)
