weekly art group

One of the things I've been wanting to do for awhile is a regular preschool/homeschool group with some other kids E's age. I came across this blog, where she lays our how to start your own weekly art group. Yay! Just what I was looking for. Chubbas is so totally into art these days, so what a great way to fuel the fire and make some fun little buddies for E to play with.

We had our first day last Friday. There were 4 families and 7 kids aged 10 months to 5 years old. It was so much fun! We did painting with 3 colors, using acrylics and sponge brushes. Some of the kids painted for quite awhile, at least one never even gave it a go, and the rest popped in and out to make their own little masterpieces throughout the morning. I have to say I love kids making art. It just makes my heart smile! I love the freedom they have to just explore. They don't care what their painting looks like, they just enjoy the process. And I know I'm nuts, but I also love the mess and the craziness!

And a playgroup at our house would not be complete without a big ol' hysterical laughing session! The kids were so funny and cute cracking each other up. I do love hearing the sound of lots and lots of laughter coming from my own living room.

I'm really looking forward to seeing how our little group evolves over time.

That looks like a lot of fun! Good for you for creating that group (and hosting it!)

I love how kids really don't care how the painting looks -- my son does the same thing and will keep piling on the paint as long as the story he has in head keeps inspiring him!
