It’s happening again. My favorite time of year is coming and with it all those vibrant fall colors. These paint blot fall trees highlight my favorite thing about fall, the trees. This is a bright and colorful project that is quick and easy, is great for all ages and only requires a few items.
It has been a busy year and we have not been posting nearly as much as we would have liked. We are ready and hoping to get back into the crafting swing of things. Last year was a big year for us with the release of our first children’s book, ‘Farmer Pete Has Stinky Feet.’ We are getting ready to print our second book and couldn’t be more excited. But, before that hits the presses, we wanted to share with you a collection of fun farm animal crafts, in honor of our favorite stinky farmer.
Sorry for the absence the last few months. Last year was a busy year for us. Between the release of our children’s book ‘Farmer Pete Has Stinky Feet’ (affiliate link) and finishing up the final touches on our next book, it has been hectic. We are happy to be back though and are ready to start painting and crafting with you all again. And what better way to kick off our return with a colorful and easy spring painting for the kiddos. These pastel resist rainy windows are perfect for the spring.
We are expecting our first snowfall tomorrow. There are very few things as beautiful to me than the first snowfall of the year. Just the thought of snow, made me giddy and inspired this fun and pretty art project for the kiddos. We live in the woods, so I just wanted something that looked like our backyard after a snow storm.
This is an easy painting project that will be fun for kids to adults. I think they will love how the pastel resist and the watercolors work together to make these simple winter scenes.
It is getting to be that time of year again. The ghosts and goblins are ready to come out and play. And this adorable paper plate flying ghost is more eager than the rest. Him and his friends are peeking out the window and they are just dying to create a little bit of spooky fun with you. This haunting craft is quick and easy to make and fun to play with. Read on further for supplies and directions… if you dare. Boooooooo!
This may sound “corn”y, but I just adore Indian corn in the fall. I love all the colors, the reds, the oranges and the blues, to name a few. They make beautiful autumn decorations and are a lovely and simple craft for the little ones to make. We compiled a list of some of favorite Indian corn crafts for kids. We have corn made out of Fruit Loops and even corn inspired by one of our favorite artists.
This weekend I took my daughter and my niece apple picking. Alongside the rows of apple trees were sunflowers as far as the eye could see. Those pretty sunflowers were the inspiration for our latest landscape painting. This field of sunflowers is perfect for the fall, super easy to make and looks just beautiful. Get your paint brushes ready little painters. This is going to be a fun one.
Am I the only one obsessed with Indian corn? I am not exactly sure what it is about those colorful ears of corn, but I just love them. Indian corn is so pretty to me and it makes for fun arts and crafts for the fall. This easy to make Indian corn project is made using pastel resist and watercolors. The results are beautiful.
We are very excited about the launch of our new book ‘Farmer Pete Has Stinky Feet’. We are thrilled with all of the amazing feedback that we have been receiving on our sweet and funny tale of a farmer with a stinky problem. To celebrate, we have a series of farm themed arts and crafts coming up inspired by the book.
We did a little bit of cleaning last week and stumbled across a ton of old scratched DVDs & CDs that do not play anymore. Since I hate throwing anything away, I was determined to make use of them. CDs are wonderful for a variety of crafts, but my favorite use for them is for making simple printmaking projects. These CD printed fall trees are quick, easy and perfect for the fall.
