One more time…

Shining last light on styrofoam, we think of packing peanuts and the hands on play that can ensue.
If you get a delivery of styrofoam or its alter ego -a corn starch based backing material (pictured here) is even better for curious science style fun. It can fuse together with water! Go on, explore…

Messy = Fun

Messy Toddler Art Fun meant creating and exploring with this n’ that this morning. We even got to mess around with some interesting Styrofoam stuff which is our material spotlight this month!


Our messy toddler friends had fun with all things shredded paper! 

We made pumpkins, put it in bottles, glued it to paper and painted it too. It was  a messy good time.

Friday Fun.

Their feet took them where they wanted to go, painting prints along the way during this mornings Messy Toddler Art Class. Such magical fun to be a child. 

Happy Friday!

What started as a messy rock painting morning quickly turned to giant paper airplanes made from book covers donated by our friends at The City of Thousand Oaks. 

We were coloring, taping and flying all around the studio.

Woo Hoo!

Surprise Fun!

We had children’s book author, Sadhna Sheli @firehouse1kids getting messy with us this morning for Messy Toddler Art Fun. She brought a copy of her new book, the first from her Firehouse 1 series, “Fire At The Bakery.”
