Yesterday, I showed you how I fit certain projects in our day. The ones that we don't finish in our morning gatherings are usually worked on in the afternoons.
I wanted to include beautiful art and handicrafts into our days so I've made a simple list of 1 art project and 1 handicraft that I'd like to get to per month. In addition to this, the boys have an actual art class they take on Mondays.
I purchased Simply Charlotte Mason's beginners art video on pastels. It's called Creating a Masterpiece and I've heard great things about it.
I also search pinterest for other ideas. Last month we tried this oil pastels cow and LOVED it!
Others on our list:
rooster or watercolor
sunflowers or these
bubble wrap corn
basket of apples
Handicrafts and Projects
hand stamped leather bracelet
pressed flower magnets
sharpies on plates the ideas are endless!
These are all valuable projects. They can be used, gifted, or even sold. Tristin wants to participate in Kid's Business next summer so he could sell the bracelets or any of these if he wants to. I'll post when we do these projects projects and if I add more to the list!
