On this snowy day, I thought I would share with you some art projects that Z and I have done this winter. He may only be 16 months but give him a sponge and paint and he goes to town :) We like to use 1/6th of a George Foreman Grill sponge....lots of cool texture ;)
This next one was a lot of fun! I pre-made the snowman out of small paper plates and cut the hat and arms out of a Weight Watchers frozen dinner box. I punched holes in the plates and tied them together with ribbon. Z helped me attach the arms and hat. I then asked him to point to his eyes and then I made snowman's eyes, then I asked him to point to his nose and I made the snowman nose etc. He then painted the body with the sponge. He loves "Frosty" as we call him.
I like to call this next one his Picasso Snowman :) I gave him each piece with glue on it and he decided where the parts of the snowman should go. This is my favorite!
