We have been on a bit of a mixed media winter art kick over the past couple of weeks. My daughter really enjoys it and we have created some beautiful pieces together.

The beauty of mixed media is there are so many options in creating a piece of art. You can use paint, markers, ink, crayons, newspaper, construction paper, tissue paper or embellishments such as buttons or glitter to create your masterpiece.
We have been loving making them and here is our latest.
My daughter and I both drew out birdhouses and then cut them out.
We cut snowy hills out of white construction paper and then glued them to blue construction paper. You can choose to paint the hill instead or use newspaper like we did in our mixed media penguin craft.
We lightly painted the blue back drops in white paint for the snowy sky. I painted mine before gluing my house into place and my daughter chose to glue her house on first and then paint around it.
She used crayons and markers to decorate her house and drew in some snowflakes as well. She has been practicing her snowflakes and has been getting pretty good at them. I chose to glue colorful tissue paper to mine.
We both topped off our birdhouses with simple shape birds. My daughter wanted a red bird for Christmas and I opted for a chickadee.
