Creative beginnings for tiny tots

The Art of Springtime

As we kick off another spring session, I wanted to share with you all an article I wrote for Washington Parent magazine a few years back.  I hope it inspires you to make the most of the creative possibilities that surround your wherever you are.

    Beautiful article! Love the nest idea… my three year old will be all over that tomorrow!

    • It’s one of my all-time favorites too! I should try to post a gallery of photos of different nests created by the kids in my groups…Hope your and your little one have fun. Let me know how it goes and maybe send me a picture to share?

        I know I would love to see all the photos of different nests from your groups of kids…I love the wide, wide range of ideas at that little age. Although, I know my 5 year old will love this project, too. I will definitely send photos. They are both home in the mornings, and this will be perfect for tomorrow. Thank you! Do you mind if I share your article with their Montessori school teachers? They are always in great need of ideas, especially ones that incorporate nature and open-ended results.

      • Please do share it. I love getting the word out to preschool teachers, many of whom are still stuck in “cookie-cutter art” mode, or maybe just a little intimidated by the art process because of it’s unpredictability and messiness, or those who are on the right track, but just looking for some fresh new ideas. Thanks!! Can’t wait to see your photos. 🙂
