“Creative art is for all time and is therefore independent of time. It is of all ages, of every land, and if by this we mean the creative spirit in man which produces a picture or a statue is common to the whole civilized world, independent of age, race and nationality; the statement may stand unchallenged.”
-Alma Thomas, 1970
See my artist-in-residence? She’s genius isn’t she? I love this easel she got for Christmas. It entertains her when I can’t. I just put some finger paints in the tray and let her paint with my MAC brushes. Yes, my expensive MAC brushes that I haven’t used in a while. I figured the prudent thing to do would be repurpose them. Besides, I don’t mind. I’m nurturing the next Alma Woodsey Thomas here!
I’m elated to have come across ToddlerToddler.com, a website with practical activities for Toddlers. No elaborate glue jobs, glorified messes, or ridiculous craft activities that sap up hours in the day, not to mention precious patience. Today we played Alphabet Bugs, and she LOVED hunting for all the bugs taped all over the apartment! Easy Peasy, this activity is a keeper.
