‘Up on the House Top’ was one of my favorite Christmas songs growing up. After playing it repeatedly the other day, we were inspired to make a few roof top art projects and a craft.
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’s favorite movie is Madagascar. She is in love with the little penguins, especially Private. We had movie night this weekend and while in the middle of the movie, she jumped up and said, “Mama, what if we make penguins.”

We couldn’t decide whether we wanted to paint or make our penguin with shapes, so we did both and opted for a mixed media project.
