In a world of busy-ness and responsibility, it’s just as important to take a few moments exploring the creative side of life. Join us as we share ideas on how to get those imaginative juices flowing and explore a world of art!
Before your mind starts conjuring up images of frosted cakes and towering piles of cookies, this project involves wood and paint. (laughing) Instead of working with food materials, we are going to be exploring the creative aspect of cookware.
For this project, each child will need a wooden spoon. Nothing fancy, just a simple, wooden spoon often used for cooking dinners and stirring pots of simmering stew. Nab a few bottles of your favorite paint, a few paintbrushes, your imagination, and you are ready to go!
The project: Using their imaginations, they are to paint their spoons any way they would like. Will it be a bumblebee, a flower, an owl, or something altogether different? There is no right or wrong answer; they are merely being judged on their creativity and their neatness.
My kiddos are really looking forward to this project. It is simple, straightforward, and easy. What more could you ask for?
If you, too, decide to work on this project, shoot us an email and let us know how it turned out!
Time to Chime In: If you could redesign any piece of cookware in your kitchen, which would it be and why?
