With 52 weeks of fantastic art projects using easy-to-find, everyday materials, Art with Anything provides a year of creativity, imagination, and fun for children ages 4-10!
Organized alphabetically by material, each week features one everyday material (address labels, fabric scraps, leaves, rocks) and provides five days of unique activities, increasing in complexity with each day. Art with Anything uses materials like buttons, cardboard, hole-punch dots, junk mail, masking tape, sandpaper, and salt, which encourages recycling and reusing!
Children will love making "Glitter Photo Jars"; or working on "Shake-It-Up-Bag Paintings"; and projects like "Family Finger Puppets"; and "Fluff-N-Puff Mobiles"; will keep them entertained for hours and stretch their imaginations.
Whether at home or at school, in child care or an after-school program, exploring the process of creating art is one of the most compelling ways children learn, and Art with Anything keeps children learning creatively all year long!
"Projects listed in the book are fun and easy, and require basic supplies that most parents have around anyhow, such as information on great art recipes (such as finger paint, play dough, goop, and bubbles), the process of art, and cleaning up. It also offers older toddlers variations, as well as ideas for the youngest toddlers too."
