I've been trying to do more art with the kids latley. When Janelle was younger, and the only child, we did more in terms of painting and crafting. But since I've had James and we made a big move I just haven't gotten back into it. But we did do some painting a couple of weeks ago and kids enjoyed it so much I felt guilty for not doing this more often. A few days later we had a missionary over for dinner and he shared a website that his wife uses for art project ideas. It was called The Artful Parent and was overflowing with some simple and some not so simple art projects for kids. I'd love to put together a schedule of projects so that we are experiencing art on a regular basis. Here are some pictures of the kids painting birdhouses I got from Michael's for $1. They had a great time.
