A large square of cardboard - preferably the pressed board instead of corrugated and some acrylic paint and VOILA - Picasso-esque artwork for the walls without having to go to Sotheby's. And how cool to decorate your walls with your kids work - no frames required!Another amazing artist and one of my favorite is Georges Seurat...LOOK!
The project for this is super fun for any age! Choose a light-colored shirt (one that has a stain is perfect for your bank account) Mask off a rectangle on the front with masking tape and while looking at a landscape photo or torn image from a magazine to paint your scene. Put another piece of cardboard inside shirt to protect from juicy paints. Using acrylic paints and Q-tips will give you the dotted style of the Impressionist Movement. Kids love this and will wear their shirts proudly. Choose a photo from a vacation or favorite place to make their artwork personal.
Although cooking is not my thing - well, it kind of is just because I have 4 people who would starve if I didn't but I am not very creative with meals. Desserts - oh I can hold my own with creative desserts. Therefore, we may be focusing on desserts for our FRENCH WEEK!
Croissants, crepes, french fries ( I know, not a dessert and I don't think it is authentic french cuisine, either...)
Please leave your comments for other FRENCH THEMATIC ideas and give me some ideas of easy, everyday vocabulary!
