I've been thinking about some fun projects to do with the kids this summer. I also want sometimes when I can just hand over art supplies and see what they come up with.
We invested in some high quality colored pencils at Christmas and both kids love them. They especially like the flesh colored pencils. However, finding a decent pencil sharpener has been less then successful! And who wants to use a dull, can-only-color-on-one-side-because-the-pencil-wood-is-ripping-the-paper-on-the-other-side pencil?!!
MerriArtist is a fun online art store but you do need a $20 order minimum so check out some of the other cool looking stuff they have like:
*Chalk Markers, use like chalk looks more like a marker (washes off with water)!
Wax Paints, I've never heard of anything like this, and you'd have to carefully supervise older children- but these paints look so FUN!
Crayola Fabric Markers and Crayons
Prisma Colored Pencils
hole punch and three hole punch
Brads, paper clips (colorful ones are fun)
Plain Paper (my kid's don't like coloring books- sometimes they like printing one coloring page
off of the internet)
Sculpey Clay (they have MANY different kinds now- you can make stretchy toys, erasers, etc.)
Paint: watercolor, tempra, finger, etc.
Felt Glue (works 100 times better then regular glue when trying to glue felt together)
Good Scissors for paper, I love my adult scissors by this brand and would like to try these for
Good Scissors for fabric
Here's to a summer of crafting! What products do your kid's enjoy?
