Family Art

I’m always searching for ways to cure the collective crank-factor.  Especially when polar-vortex induced cabin fever sets in.  When the kids were babies, water-play worked wonders as did anything involving an epic mess.

Thankfully, we always have art on our side.  Over the past few years, I’ve seen the kids express things through art before even having the means to articulate their feelings.  There’s nothing quite like watching little ones immersed in smearing cool finger paint, or proudly describe their latest creation.  The children have a pretty amazing example in their father too.

Instead of setting the kids up with supplies, we’ve been stretching a roll of paper across the floor to make something that we all contribute to.


Family art night has worked wonders on all of our spirits.

Art absolutely = peace for everyone
