I’ve been drooling over some amazing blogs about art and play lately. I look at these virtual Montessori Meccas and fantasize about daily art activities based on weekly themes for C. Then S starts crying and I come to my senses. But not having time to set up a preschool in my living room doesn’t mean I have to give up on art all together.
To make it more manageable (and to keep me more accountable), I’ve made a pact with a friend – we’ll do it together, about once a week. We’ll go supply shopping together and our kids will love it and our Mother-of-the-Year certificates will surely be in the mail in no time. I’m psyched! But where should I begin??
At Pink and Green Mama, that’s where, because she’s already done the leg work for me. She’s provided a very helpful post on everything I need to buy. More importantly, she has some great tips on what to keep in mind to successfully make art at home with my toddler. Don’t have a toddler but still want in on the fun? No problem, she has a similar post for preschoolers and school-age kids too.
P.S. Looking for more ways to simplify and connect with your family?
