Inspired Art


I hear that way too many times. 
I am feeling the need to banish the word bored from our house.
It's an evil word. 

Surprise, surprise Bored was Madison's word of the day yesterday but I had a reply this time. Well besides the usual "I guess we might as well toss all your toys then if you are sooooo bored". I stumbled upon the cutest and easiest kiddo friendly project on Pinterest a few weeks ago and quickly grabbed the materials from the closet to combat Little Miss Bored. 

Really this couldn't be any easier I grabbed an unused pencil from the craft closet, along with a stamp pad and some small pieces of cardstock. 

 Maddie was set for an hour or so making her own designs.

 I have to admit I enjoyed doing some cool designs too. Its a very calming technique which I have definitely needed lately!

Maddie loved her finished work and cut to size these would make great postcards to send too!

Those WOULD make great postcards! Or make 6 of them and frame them in 2 rows - it would look like modern art :)

That is a really cute idea. I wonder if I could make it into some kind of nursery art.
