In exchange for piano lessons, I come up with creative art projects for 6 children ranging from 14 to 3. Right now I am using supplies that I have on hand. It has been fun for me and the kids seem to be enjoying themselves.
This weeks project was a simple coloring project. I had them trace the board on a piece of scrap paper. I wanted them to think about their drawing before we actually did the drawings on the puzzle stock. We made puzzle pictures.
This is an example of the pictures. This picture, however, is mine . My kids are still creating their masterpieces. I had the other children break up their puzzles and put them in a bag. When Mom joined us after all those piano lessons, she had to put the picture together to see what they had drawn. They did a really good job and thought how fun to make their parents put their pictures together.
The blank puzzles I have found at craft stores like Michael’s. They can also be ordered online.
The kids have enjoyed using these blank puzzles. They have used the puzzles to create cards that they have sent to friends. It is also a great way to allow a smaller child to create their own learning puzzles.
Just an idea from my head to yours…….
