You can bring art outside during the summer!
Even if it's simple coloring or drawing, changing the space in which art takes place will make it all new and exciting for kids! This week, in our Wednesday's Share & Play day on Facebook, we invited everyone to share their ideas and posts about making art outside! After all, we should take advantage of beautiful weather and try out some more messy art forms outside of our living areas! (Less stressful for parents too! ;) We had great response and tons of ideas were shared and this post will present them all so you can recreate them with your own kids! :)
