It has been one of those weeks of what I planned for the week and what I have accomplished are two completely different things!
I know I stated that I was going to do a week of balloon activities.
Well if you count two I am on target. I guess I did make their hair stand up with static electricity.
Huge hit with the kids.
We did balloon printing today while Lorelei was taking a nap. I wanted him to have his own time and activity.
Hunter was thrilled with it.
Hunter put paint on a paper plate and rolled the balloon in the paint and then drew designs on the balloon with a Q-tip. Then Hunter rolled the balloon on paper to make masterpieces.
Okay so Hunter was pretending that the blue Giant was coming to squish the village of paper people.
All I can say is the giant did some beautiful squishes.
We have four lovely pieces of artwork now! I am a hoarder when it comes to my children's things. I hate "throwing away a memory". However, I DO NOT HAVE ROOM for everything.
I take a picture of all Hunter's creations. Digital space is much easier to come by! Then I pick 1 or 2 I absolutely can't part with. The rest become cards or gifts to people.
I have seen the idea of cutting the artwork in to animal shapes then framing it.
I think that will definitely be something I will try this time.
What are somethings you all do with your children's masterpieces?
