I loved doing this in art class. Art With Mr. E: Line Design w/Shading - Grade Very cool, fun art shading project from Art With Mr. E. he's an elementary art specialist. Try this with your kids (but I think grown ups would enjoy this too).
Repeat Crafter Me: Owl Granny Square Crochet Pattern I am making these now. Took a bit of time to figure out pattern, but sooooo worth it! Going to make an adorable blanket mixed with owl squares and granny squares.
What a delicious riot of colour in Lucy of fabulous granny patchwork blanket! She explains how she makes her granny squares (no chain spaces on the sides and only a ch 2 in the corners). Edging pattern to come.
Painting with Watercolors, Glue and Salt. Kids will love being creative and making designs with the glue. The salt creates a pretty starburst effect by soaking up paint pigments as the painting dries. And as an extra bonus: the salt sparkles!
