I am big on summer projects. Sitting in front of the television or the playstation is just a good way to fry your brain in my opinion. However, there is nothing more boring than those summer bridge workbooks.
With Memorial Day past us, I am trying to settle us into more of a routine and so this afternoon Big Guy said, "Mom, when are you going to tell us?"
(That is the best time to introduce the projects - when they are interested!)
I pulled out one of my bags filled with art supplies that I had been collecting including four fresh art books. I gave them each two books. One book was for doodling and whatever creative drawing they wanted to do. The other was for creative art assignments.
Their first assignment: Using the art supplies I had given them (ruler, circle ruler, charcoal, water colors, colored pencils, etc...) and design what their album cover would look like if they had a band.
Their eyes got really BIG and they both said "Cool!".
If they love this, they are going to love the photography scavenger hunts I have planned.
