    Snippet Art

    So my daughter came home with this beautiful geometric craft project she made at school. When I was talking to her teacher she told me she just cut out a bunch of shapes and let the kids go wild with them. And when we got home my daughter said to me, “mommy, we can make these into Snippets!” my heart literally melted! So I pulled out all the scribble stickers and she went to work! We were identifying all the shapes, just like the book!  This project lasted a good 45 minutes, and for a 3.5 year old that’s great!  After making these she loved the book “Snippets” even more!

    Q-Tip Spot Rainbow Painting

    I just love books that have an art Activity that goes with it, and this one is super simple and fun! It was inspired by the book “Spots”  All you need to do is download the below rainbow printable and either have your kids use dabbers or Q-Tips with paint! For the Q-Tips we used plastic ice trays that we got off amazon and liquid watercolors and it turned out great!     If you’re feeling extra crafty you can actually create some of the SPOT characters using “Scribble Stickers”

    Splatter Blow Art

    As  you know all my books have easy art activities that go with them. And Splatter is one of my favorite books and activity set! I do this because it makes reading SOOO much fun! And because I love ART! So I’ve tried a couple different ways to do blow (eye dropper or watercolor puddle) and I would say the water color puddle works the best. SO I made a video!! My kids got a little TOO carried away with the dropper and they had more control making “watercolor puddles” and then blowing with a straw. Also a bent straw did help in giving them more direction! photo credit @raisingkinley…

    Splatter Spinner Art

    This was so much fun! I love reading books to my kids and having an after reading art activity! With the book “Splatter” you can do just that! This book not only has a great message about teamwork and perseverance but it has a great lesson on color theory too! You can’t help but want to create our own splatters after reading it! The nice thing bout the fantastic spinner is that it requires NO batteries! Which is awesome! And it has a Splash guard! The stickers have the exact eyes and mouths from the book and you can get those on amazon too! All links provided below!

    The story behind I’m not just a Scribble…

    Let’s inspire our kids to create ART! Did you know many of the motions involved in making art, such as scribbling with a crayon are essential to the growth of fine motor skills in young children? I wanted to create a book that inspired ART in children as well as teaching them to cherish being unique! And I believe this book accomplishes those two things! The story behind the story My son actually inspired the character for this book, he’s still new to drawing and most of his drawings would be scribbles that he wasn’t too excited about. Then one day he got the idea to put two googly eyes…
