Our second challenge is about artwork! Kids love to color, or draw or paint. They love art. As adults we often get to thinking about how bad we are at it, or if we aren't bad at it, how little time we have for it. But you have time to color with your kids today if nothing else, I know it!

Maybe today is the day you'll start a big 4th of July craft project you'll work on for the next couple of months with your child to hang on your wall for a big BBQ your having. Maybe today is the day you'll draw a picture and let your child color it. It depends on their age of course how involved they can get and if it needs to be finger painting or making a statue with clay, but you can somehow do an art project together today. The key there is that it is together. This is not where you get out the supplies and let your kid go wild, this is where if they're finger painting, your fingers had better be dirty too.

Here are a couple links to some ideas for art projects, I tried to get ones for different ages in here:

Share with us your thoughts on dare 2 and completing it with your kiddo!

Art is one thing Timmy has no attention span for. I try to color with him and he'll color for about three minutes then he's all done. Maybe I'll be daring get the finger paints out! We finger painted last summer but all he did was eat it lol! I have pretty funny pictures of that!

My one and only is 8 months old so he isn't really into crafts yet. BUT!! He loves to play with his food. Tonight I'll let him fingerpaint his high chair tray with his leftovers!

DD and I made homemade play dough and made sculptures. We also made/decorated paper sack hand puppets.

Here is the play dough recipe if anyone is interested (it is out of her baby wild animals book she gets in the mail)

Homemade Play Dough

Ingredients:
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup water
1/2 cup salt
1 Tablespoon cooking oil
3 teaspoons cream of tartar
food coloring

Directions:
1) Mix all ingredients in a pan.
2) Cook on low heat, stirring frequently.
3) When dough pulls away from the sides of the pan and begins to form a ball, it is done. Do not overcook.

It doesn't say anything about how to store the play dough. I think I am going to store mine in a container in the fridge.

We talked about Earth Day and did sidewalk chalk. Even the 1 year old had fun with it.... until he tried to eat them and I had to take them away.

I didn't get a chance to check this until now, but we did do some artsy things together today! We colored this morning in Kaija's Tinkerbell coloring book and this afternoon played a bit with sidewalk chalk.

This past winter we took a toddler art class and it was awesome. Every Friday for 6 weeks Kaija got to run around and try different ways to be creative. I should start doing some of those things with her on our own. She really loved it. I can't wait for Fall so we can go again!

I took this art camp thing with Courtney when she was almost 3, I remember that being awesome, we still have the stuff from it, I was so proud, my stuff actually turned out well, lol...apparently even I can be taught!

But today all we did was draw and color a picture, she got so into it, she always draws, but I never do it with her really.

lol for us it would be July 1st. My kids got some paper and did some different drawings. Hannah even joined in. Joshua tried to draw spiderman. It was cute.He told Hannah she was not drawing her picture right and just scribbling. She is not 3 yet so I think she did pretty good.
