So what did Spud and I make? Well, a cityscape. Of course. He loves building cities. And we did it using stuff from the recycle bin. We also learned how to make paste paper to add texture to the front of our buildings.

And we turned it into a nightlight.

But there are 19 other projects that are perfect for little hands that run the gamut from mask making to felting to embroidery. You name it!

Here are a just a few that are going on our crafty to do list right now ...

So, want a copy of your own? Leave a comment here and I'll put your name in a "hat" for a random draw. If you want an extra entry then tweet this post tagging @jackieatweelife.

Contest will close Friday, June 8, 2012 at midnight. Good luck!

UPDATE: Contest is Closed! Thanks to everyone who participated. I will be drawing and announcing the winner soon!


KarenK, I need your address ... email me at jackie at weelife dot com. Congratulations!

Photography of Spud, me and our process was done by Kiley Redhead (BFF) and Adrian Mandy (Hubs).

This book would be a tremendous asset to the family preschool me and my kids attend. I am part of the art committee and we're always trying to come up with fun projects for kids aged 3 to 5. Thanks for the inspiration!

What a beautiful book. I think art is essential in the development of sensitive, balanced and happy human beings... Art is an integral part of our family and I am grateful for the time we share together during those moments creating freely.

Looks like great book and hours and hours of fun.

I am a new grandparent. Though the baby is only now 8 months old, I look forward to the day when we do art together. So important to start children doing art, and keep them doing it through and into adulthood.

KarenK said...

I think your spud is very creative and possibly destined for a career in architecture.
I'll bet his Grandparents and Aunties are really proud of him too.
