We went to Saugatuck, Michigan last week (bet you didn’t know that, because I pre-scheduled blog posts for that time. You really should be careful what information you give out when you are leaving town. You don’t want to come back to a ransacked house!) Anyways, we were gone for about 5 days and went to the Indiana Dunes and stayed in a cabin in Saugatuck. We went with my brothers, nieces/nephews and my parents.
We had a blast riding the dune buggy rides, playing at the beach and going shopping in the cute shops.
One afternoon, I brought out my art journaling supplies for my daughter and niece to play with.
Some of the supplies we used were:
- Hello Kitty stampers
- papers that I had painted from my stash
- some of my homemade stickers
- patterned tapes
- random collage images
- pre-cut paper shapes
My niece is going into 1st grade and here are some of her awesome pages. She was very prolific in the few hours we were making art.
|My daughter enjoyed just cutting paper into lots of pieces.|
If you want to learn more about art journaling with kids, I wrote a little E-Zine called Art Journaling with Kids.
