Saw this article on FB and I thought some of these ideas are really good.

Which ones are your favorites?

This is one of my favorites....


Create lawn art
Art doesn't have to happen inside. Bring a white or light-colored sheet or tarp outside and lay it out on the lawn. Put out bowls of paint and brushes and let the kids create a colorful tapestry. Voila! No spills on the rug. Seriously, look!

I like that idea! We painted rocks the other day. Washable paint, our landscaping was colorful for a while.

That sounds fun!

I was thinking if I got fabric paint or markers and could find a good priced sheet set, I might let my son design his own sheets. I think he might enjoy that.

I like that one, too, but my son is almost 9 so I don't think he would love that one as much as a younger child.
