Meet Stephanie! She’s a 24 year old stay at home Mom, who couldn’t ask for a better blessing than to be home with her daughter!! Their favorite things to do together is working on art projects and they enjoy sharing them with people at Crafting with Bug!! In her free time she enjoys reading and scrapbooking!!
I have to admit, a couple weeks ago we ran out of construction paper and all I could think was “we don’t have paper how am I supposed to do art projects?” I was struggling trying to figure out what we could do until our paper arrived.
My husband had ‘kindly’ pointed out that I hadn’t done art for quite a while [like I missed that fact :/ ] so my reply was ‘I’m waiting for the construction paper to come before we can do anything’. Without missing a beat my husband looks at me and says ‘Doing art doesn’t necessarily have to mean creating something out of paper’.
That got me thinking because IT IS SO TRUE!!! I’ve done stuff in the kitchen with my daughter and outside with her but it never crossed my mind when I didn’t have the typical resources accessible to me to do it again!
‘Art’ is such a loose term when it comes to doing things with kids. I personally believe that anything a child can do hands on and explore could be considered ‘art’. I know this thought has escaped me lately and I’m sure I am not the only one. Are you trapped in the box too??
