The Artful Parent

Hello Ankle Biter Art Friends!
Today, I would like to tell you about a super mom and columnist that I found on the Internet.  When I grow up and become a mom someday, I hope I can provide as creative an environment for my children as she does for hers.  Allow me to introduce you to Jean, The Artful Parent.  I've only been following her blog for a few months now, but I am endlessly inspired and impressed.  So, instead of me sharing everything of hers that I think is wonderful on my blog and just linking you over to her at The Artful Parent, I think you should add hers to your reading list.  She posts wonderful projects and activities that are not just helpful to moms, but to teachers as well.  Here are some of my favorites that she's shared recently...
Rainbow Stained Glass Window

Column for WNC Parent
Scavenger Hunt & Make

Ice Sculptures with Salt and Liquid Watercolors

And there you have it!  I highly recommend following her blog.  She does a great job...much better than I, but still follow me too.  ;-)
p.s.  She has a Facebook page too, so that's an easy was to follow her if you're not down with the RSS.  The Artful Parent - Facebook Link

As always...have fun and get messy!
