All in Art
Here we were, about to eat a hamburger and fries, when my four-year-old reminded me that if he mixes all the ketchup into the mustard, it makes orange.
So what better way to bring his discovery home by mixing red and yellow paint into a large storage bin.
It was quick. It was fun. It helped expand upon his hypothesis. The Scientific Method through play. - A brilliant way to get your preschooler to remember what they have learned.
I’ve been there.
I know that painting is an important part of self expression and color exploration, yet questions such as the following stump the process.
What kind of toddler art supplies do I use?
Is there a special paintbrush?
How do I keep the mess contained?
Over the last four years, we have painted plenty. No table has been harmed, and in fact, the painting has actually calmed the chaos. GASP! I know!
Inside I will show you how to paint with your two-year-old involving minimal prep, along with the best toddler art supplies.
It was weeks after Christmas and the room looked more like a walk-in closet than a playroom.
Duplos lingered into the hallway, and pictures were beginning to hang sideways; mostly due to me haphazardly nailing them to the wall.
But I was about to go in strong. My goal was to get rid of things that have been lingering for years and have the room become more intentional.
2 kids ago there was a rhythm to this room that had been lost. Since then, we have been overloaded and it was time to get organized.
And give this room a serious makeover.
My intent is to help you organize ideas, share uses for storage and inspire design wherever that may be. Take this post and make it work for you and your space.
It all began with Color Sort on our Breakfast Invitation Cards.
“Which shade of blue is the darkest?”
“Which shade of blue is the lightest?”
