Throughout December we'll be Spotting the Monster in our scribble art and using our creative imagination to transform what you might have thought was a mistake into a completely new work of art! So what are we waiting for? Let's create our own monsters!
With the holidays coming up there must be someone in your life who would love to see some decorations and gifts that kids make themselves. A perfect example is making the Thanksgiving table extra special with coasters made with leaves from Cool Crafts with Flowers, Leaves and Twigs by Jen Jones. Vegetable prints make beautiful placemats and it's the time of year when root vegetables are plentiful. Who wouldn't want a placemat printed with a design from potatoes, turnips or perhaps a parsnip or two? Of course you could also use these prints as handy wrapping paper for Hannukkah, Christmas or Kwanzaa presents as well!
Do you believe in monsters? Have you ever thought about what they are made of? What ingredients would you need to create your own monster? And how would you put them all together? Just thinking about it makes me feel like a mad scientist...mwahahaha!
On October 31, November 1, and November 2, there is a holiday dedicated to remembering loved ones who have died, and celebrating their lives with family and friends. This is Día de los Muertos.
