I love sharing my favorite blogs with you all, and am SO thrilled to be sharing one of my very favorite happy places - Art Bar Blog - with you today. She's here sharing 25 GORGEOUS projects for little ones that just use Paint and Paper. I first found Art Bar through her amazing Washer Necklace project and her DIY Monster Patches and soon discovered that I love everything that she posts (not actually kidding. I do.). She's also one of my fellow Rockin' Art Moms! Without further ado, I'll let her take it away...
Hello! When Asia asked me if I wanted to write a little something for her blog and share my art projects with her readers, I did a little jump and a clap! I love this blog and everything that Fun at Home with Kids stands for. I have Asia’s book and we use it all the time in art class. She is not just a blogging friend but also one of the coolest and most creative mamas. So being here today makes me super happy! I teach art to four-year olds in my home. Some of these art projects were done with my students, and some were done with my own kids who are a little bit older. But all of them can be adapted to any age. I am a huge fan of keeping it simple. We use a lot of just paint and paper. It never really gets old. Sometimes I use cardboard, but I consider that to be part of the paper world. I hope you find something that works for you and your family!
