Fun With Art πŸŽ¨

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

I hope this post finds you well and in good spirits! πŸ˜ŠπŸ’•πŸŒ·

Crazy times we’re living in, huh? I’m currently practicing this ‘social distancing’ thing. It’s going good – Books and Art definitely help! πŸ™‚

And speaking of Art…today I wanna share some fabulous art-ideas for all of you that are stuck in the house. πŸ₯΄ These are great activities to share with the young ones, but also fun for the ‘young-at-heart’ 😁

1. Roll A Picasso

I already created my ‘ Masterpiece’ πŸ˜…

Now some color in his cheeks, and he’ll be ready for the weekend! πŸ₯³

2. Watercolor/Yarn Art

I have not tried this, but it looks like a lot of fun!

All you need is:

-Yarn

-PVA Glue (Elmer’s for example)

-Watercolor paper

-Watercolors

-Paintbrush

-Craft Stick

-Scissors

Water

3. Spin-Art

Now that is nice and messy πŸ˜…

Here’s what you need:

A recycled CD

β€’ Sticky tape or masking tape

β€’ Rubber bands, the more the better! (We used 15)

β€’ A pen that will fit through the hole in the disk 

β€’ 4 coins of the same size 

β€’ Acrylic paint, poster paint or inks 

β€’ Water

β€’ A pot, tray or egg carton to mix the paint colours

β€’ Brushes and an old spoon to mix and drop the paint 

β€’ A large piece of paper (A3 or A2) 

β€’ An apron to cover your clothes 

β€’ A work area where you can get messy

β€’ Newspaper to cover your work area

I hope these ideas keep you all busy for a while! I keep digging, and will be back with more soon!

Until then…be safe & stay healthy! πŸ’•

    A most positive spin (pun intended) on these times in which everyone appears to have totally lost their senses.

    How cute! Roll a picasso looks like fun. I might try that with the kids at work if we get the chance to go back after all the craziness.
