This might be my most favorite art project ever.  We made melted crayon art with a glue gun, and it was so cool!

Are you having any spring showers this week?  We took advantage of the little rain we had and made paint from two ingredients - one of the ingredients was rain!

I'm getting ready to recreate this favorite sensory activity from two years ago with plastic eggs, water beads, and light.  It was one of the coolest sensory bins we have ever made!

I know what we're doing tomorrow!  How cool is this connect the colors game from +hands on : as we grow?  Such a great idea for active learning.
 
Connect the colors of paper with yarn in the same color. A simple activity to get kids up and moving without it getting wild. Plus learn about colors!

My boys love helping me make playdough.  For a fun twist, I mixed up a batch when they weren't around.  At first sight they appeared to be plain white, but after a little playing the boys discovered it was color surprise playdough!
