Virtual Refrigerator Weekly Art Link Up

I think as our children get older it becomes easier for them to turn any project into art or arts and crafts. Our two youngest have been busy this week coloring for their various homeschooling lessons as well as creating fun super hero puppets for an upcoming birthday party. 

I also tried something different. I found a box of old computer labels and instead throwing them away (like I had originally intended), I wrote out some of our daughters words on the labels, cut up the sheets and had her spell the words. They were all three letter words. She is only four after all. 

You may be wondering what does this have to do with art? Well, while she was doing this, I started drawing on the left over two columns of labels. 


First just a scribble of colors - red and purple. 

Then I wrote Art on the labels. 

Then I decided to decorate the back of one of our folders. I really like the effect this created. I think the key is making sure the letter and design continue onto multiple labels. 

Super Heroes and Villains Puppets 

Here is the Joker in progress. 

We used green and purple construction paper, one lunch bag, one flower brad from my scrapbooking days, a skinny pipe cleaner, and googly eyes (and lots of glue sticks). If I had more time (and talent), I would include a yellow shirt under the green vest.

Homeschooling Lessons 

Our entire family had fun using the coloring book from The Kingdom Code. There are great pictures in there that reinforce the idea of starting a business in a Godly manner. 

Do your kids have any favorite coloring books? 

Our six-year-old is working his way through finishing up our Rhythm & Writing with the Get Write Crew workbook. He decided to copy his sister's octopus that she painted last week in his workbook. 

Do your children have a favorite way to express their creative side on paper? Do they prefer crayons, markers, pencils, or paint? 

Join us this week! 

We would love to see your kids' artwork this week.

  1. I like how you repurposed those computer labels for spelling and for art. :-) The puppet is cute too!
