They loved it and could draw pictures and journal to their heart's content. I found that they would take the jar in the car and that perhaps I should come up with a more compact way for them to bring it, so I developed two products. The Sketch It and Journal It are sketch and journal prompts on a ring. They are easy to stuff in a bag or pocket and accompanied with a journal or sketch pad make the perfect gift. You can purchase your on Sketch It or Journal It by contacting Mulberry Creek Embellishments at the right.
Okay, we all have the problem of what to do with the kid's art work, right? One of my friends came up with a great idea and she photographs her kid's artwork and makes a scrapbook of photos. It is more compact than saving it all. I had a blank wall upstairs and decided to buy random sized frames and frame their drawings and artwork. We change it out and the kids have a great time selecting what will be on display next.
Are your kids into duct tape crafts yet? You can find all sorts of fun patterns at Wal-mart, Michaels and Hobby Lobby. My daughter, Maddie, made this super fun duct tape flower pencil. It's super easy very cute.
Simply make several of these and wrap them around the eraser side of the pencil to form a rose.
