Scratch art with oil pastels
The arts encompass so many different things – theater, music, painting, sculpting…the list goes on and on.
So this week, why not try your hand at something new? Here are some fun ideas:
Water color painting
Act out a scene from a play
Go see a play performed
Create a scrapbook about your summer
Make a clay sculpture
Decorate a white plate or mug with sharpie markers and bake at 350 for 30 min. to make it permanent.
Make your own stained glass window with wax paper and crayon shavings (melt shavings between wax paper with an iron)
paper towel tube art Give your child a camera and let them play with photography
Try out a new musical instrument or make your own instruments from things found around the house!
Make some scratch art! Draw a simple picture, and color it in with brightly colored oil pastels. Then cover the whole picture in black pastel. Scratch it off to make a neat looking picture.
Most importantly, have fun and be creative! If you have a fun arts idea or project, feel free to share in the comments!
