A Is for Art

I am so excited to be blogging through the alphabet! My friend Marcy started this meme a while back and it looked like so much fun. You know how I am though, since I didn't start the first week, I personally couldn't start partway through. That would just be wrong. I was happy to see that she was starting again. And since it's week 1, I can participate!

So even though we're camping, here I am sitting beside the lake, typing. The sun is warm, the breeze is cool, and I'm thinking about art. (Or at least I was sitting by the water basking in the sun . . . a week ago. How am I ever going to keep up with all 26 letters when it's taken me all week with just the first one. sigh.) Art is such a big part of our lives. Not looking at fancy art in a gallery or anything, but creating our own. The kids can make art with just about anything. You can hand them a pile of scraps, and they'll turn it into something beautiful.

You don't need expensive supplies to create masterpieces. Here is a list of art projects that we've made using regular household items.

So much fun and so decorative! They're well on their way to becoming high-demand artists!

What other common objects do you like to use for creating art???
