Kids shouldn’t get to have all the fun, especially when they tend to intentionally wipe their runny noses on your sleeve and ask for candy every 10 minutes all day long.
Parents should get all the fun. Parents should raid the kids’ blogs and do all the fun things we find there, and then we should flop ourselves across our beds and read books and eat gorgeous bento-inspired snacks all day. And then watch Gilligan’s Island reruns, obviously.
I was sent a preview copy of the Kids’ Activities Blog‘s new kick-ass book, 101 Kids Activities, and I wrote a review of it over on Artchoo, but I decided to continue the review over here, and to expand upon the project we tried. We made bubble prints, and I thought to myself that they would make cool backgrounds for drawings. Naturally I needed a new pen, so I up and purchased a 3-pack of Sharpie pens. I drew some random dots where it looked like the bubbles were intersecting, and I used a straight-edge to draw lines between some of the dots. Dude. This was as fun as the Zentangle project I posted a couple of months ago.
Anyway, since this project was inspired by the Kids’ Activities Blog book, I shall post a link to Amazon so you can acquire one for yourself. You’ll want a copy of this if you have kids, and you’ll especially want one if you want to one-up all the other moms in your ‘hood with all the fun things you do with your kids this summer.
If you have no children, or merely want to find out how to do the bubble part of this project, click over to Artchoo for the particulars, and by all means, post your pretty pictures on my Facebook wall.
