Next up: farm painting!
I found a lot of great artsy ideas from Pinterest that go along with the farm theme. Here are a few:
Farm Painting from Two-Daloo
Garden Vegetable Painting from No Time for Flashcards
|Veggie Paint Brush from Creative with Kids|
As I was searching through my own craft supplies, I found a bag of stamps (from my childhood) that just happen to be farm animals (score!) . So I decided to let the kids do some farm animal "stamping". Here are the supplies I used:
With this art project (with any really), I wanted to be flexible and allow the kids to do whatever they want with it. I figured Lucas and Ada wouldn't really get the whole "stamping" concept, so I figured I'd just let them explore, which they did! They also tried to make a snack of it. Both of them got very excited and made animal noises (for Ada, it just happened to always be a moo) as they recognized each animal.
Here are finished paintings:
Don't you love all the awesome animal prints?! Haha! If you look REAL closely, you might spot a couple.
Even though you can't exactly tell this is farm painting, the important thing is that the kids enjoyed themselves and learned through the experience. I think their paintings are pretty cute. :)
