For my last Campbell's post, I've been thinking about God and art.
(This ain't Theology 101, just me and my thoughts).
I think God gives each child a creative spirit.
My kids love to create. They don't need fancy art sets or drawing tables. Give them a papersack, an egg carton and pipe cleaner and they will create a dinosaur robot, a silly caterpillar or both.
During this winter activity series, one word continued to show up in the comments: crafts.
Imaginations soar with an encouraged creative outlet and what better way to pass those long endless winter days, then with a project?
We've always had a small spot for markers, paints and paper (and it's usually a giant mess!) I decided to clean out my old antique hutch that I moved out of my dining room, put dishes away that I rarely use and create an art center for my kids.
Each drawer is filled with kid-friendly items. Markers and paints are in the drawers out of my toddler's reach:
Winter + Art= Hours of fun and fulfillment!
How to make paper fairy wings:
Cut paper into fun shapes
Tape onto back
Hop around the room like a fairy!
Instead of tossing empty food containers or pitching leftover pieces, we collect them, save them for the imagination.
Challenge: Let art take over a small (or BIG!) part of your home.
