So we are getting to the dregs as far as fun ideas of things to do with kids goes around here. Two more weeks until school starts and we seem to have done it all. So yesterday we tried something new. On someone's blog (sorry, can't remember who!) I saw an idea for fabric collage with kids. Basically you let you kids use your scrap bag to make a collage. This was my basic idea but I had a box of fabric crayons I picked up on clearance I let the kids use too. Matthew went crazy with them! He was knocking out masterpiece after masterpiece!
I think this is my favorite.
Love this one too. He has done about five now, I am going to encourage him to do one more and then I think I will use them for squares of a little tv quilt I will make for his birthday in September. Won't that be cute?
Brittany stayed more true to my original idea. She used the fabric crayons to draw one of my favorite subjects, cherries and then used bits to create a frame. She isn't quite done. I have to think of something really good for this creation too.
So we sat around, kids stitching and drawing and me stuffing witches whiel we watched the Amazing Panda Adventure in preparation for the Olympics. A really good afternoon. But don't get me wrong, school starting will be fun too!
