a creativity picnic!!

                                                   (Creative Flight, mixed media)

A few days ago we had a creativity picnic! I took a blanket and spread it out on the grass. There were crayons and coloring books, Playdoh and puppets, stickers and stamps, markers...a glue stick, watercolors and finger paints...and collage!! We sang and read. There was dancing and all sorts of silliness.Tara was beside herself with magical amazement and joy. As she gets older, I really want to have a special creativity date each week...But I also want to incorporate creativity into her everyday, art, scrapbooking, painting, writing...oh! So many things. Does anyone have any ideas...things you have read about or done with your own children? Please share as I would love to know so I can do them with Tara!

How very sweet to share the first of MANY creative picnics with your lovely girl. She is getting so big!

I love this!! What a wonderful idea. When my girls were younger, we did something crafty and creative almost every day. We went on lots of nature hikes too. I miss those days! Soak up every second that you can.

What a lovely picnic with your little girl. A beautiful idea! When my daughter was little we did a lot of crafty things together - making frames with craftsticks and putting funny pictures in there, painting with sidewalk chalk, creating autumn pictures with fallen leaves and LOTS of drawing. Play-doh was very popular as well. She also loved to scrapbook a lot. There are so many possibilities. I always enjoyed to see what she actually made, it was interesting. I also love her point of view in photography - she really develops her very own style. Love that.
