Creativity out of the Bag

Do you want to stretch you child's imagination? Especially, when all the rain is keeping them inside? Here is an idea. Give them a bag full of interesting items (i.e. scraps of material, cotton balls, buttons, sequins, puzzle pieces, paper, and any thing else you can find), scissors, and glue and challenge them to create something new. They can come up with fantasy creatures or beautiful collages, foreign landscapes or secret gardens. Anything goes! Have them set up an Art Show and help cook or make little snacks for an "Opening" for their exhibit. You could go all out and invite neighborhood children or relatives to attend. Have fun together this summer and take pictures to commemorate the event!

Love how you are posting great fun things for the kids to do. Too bad we didn't get this started until school was ending. Next year will be great with all our blogs. :0)
