My kids absolutely love creating, and this summer we’ve been doing lots of lots of art! They are as happy as clams just working with simple materials like crayons, scissors and glue, but it’s always fun to occasionally throw in some new ideas too! I love seeing the excitement on their faces when I pull out new materials or show them new ways to use art supplies. They will often sit for over an hour using these new techniques!
