BIG! MESSY! Art For Kids! a series for Muse of the Morning

This week I did a whole series on BIG! MESSY! Art for Kids. Summertime is the best time to make the biggest, messiest art that you can because it dries fast and it cleans up easily- with the sprinkler or garden hose. And most days no one minds getting a little wet because it’s hot!

Below, you’ll find the posts that I wrote this week with Big! Messy! Art that we did and then you’ll find a whole bunch more inspiration for your own BIG! MESSY! Art Play!! I hope you’ll get out some art supplies and make a mess!!
