A friendly blogger recently left a comment on how great it would be to have an art project ready when the kids get home from school. I actually struggle with this. The mom in me says, "that will be so messy to get all out and then clean up". The art teacher that is living inside is saying, "What? Get messy! Create! Have a ball!"
I thought I would feature some art activities that you could have get out and put away without too much fuss. Yesterday the kids and I created some thumbprint art inspired by something I saw at the small object. The thumbprint alphabet is fun and easy to clean up. (unless you do what I did and mix up some permanent ink pads with your washable ink pads)
