I LOVE the creative children’s community on Instagram, finding people both friendly and inspiring! This week, along with @mielaerkerasmussen (who has many amazing activities!), I had the privilege of guest hosting @kidscrafts101. This initiative, moderated by http://www.redtedart.com/& @incredibusy, is a great way to connect and share many forms of creativity. The only thing that was difficult about this week was selecting the featured projects- there are just so many wonderful ideas! From the top, left to right: 1) Check out @makefilmplay for her stop motion videos! 2) The use of straws are ingenious for printing from @creatingcreatives 3) @handywithscissors made these flowers out of plastic bags!! 4) Floating chalk prints from @artcampla (can’t wait to try this!) 5) Design your own spinning top with @thebluebarn 6) Adding lemon juice to watercolour (I haven’t seen this before) from @thea_snv. 7) Self portrait prints from @studio4art: I like the bright backgrounds! 8) A giant tree from @lineandformatelier (I would have definitely been into making this when I was a teacher!) 9) And finally, I love the mix of painted paper and modelling clay on @paintedpaperart‘s flowers! A BIG thank you to everyone for joining in! Here are Mie’s favourites: I n s p i r a t i o n So many interesting projects this week at #kidscrafts101 - I’ve had a hard time selecting, but these projects are the ones my children helped my choose and the ones they want to try!
