Art Making With Almost Five Year Olds

Today we worked making fabric painted off white muslin is taped to the table and the kids are using fabric fineliners and fabric paint crayons to draw their pictures on the fabric pieces... This is my grandsons big design that he dared me to be able to follow with my sewing machine Grand daughter used the fabric sticks to make her design...
This is a second quilt she designed herself telling me what to piece and sew where...
the center green piece with duck is plastic that I was to sew down with pink thread...
Almost fives sometimes pull faces when getting their photos taken with their wonderful
finished art pieces...
And sometimes they refuse to sit up but will lay on their bed with art laid on their bodies as human walls in a gallery of art...
Tomorrow I will show you our trip to the beach and music store.
