With fifty-two weeks of fantastic art projects using ordinary materials, Art with Anything provides a year of creativity, imagination, and fun! This new book uses best-selling author MaryAnn F. Kohl's mantra "It's the process, not the product" to explore making art every day from everyday materials. Organized alphabetically by material, each of the fifty-two weeks features five days of activities, increasing in complexity with each day: Day 1 is basic, Days 2 and 3 are more challenging, Day 4 is a craft project, and Day 5 is multi-faceted or fancy. Materials include address labels, fabric scraps, hole punch dots, junk mail, leaves, rocks, salt, and many more! The activities in Art with Anything are creative, fun, and geared to children ages four to ten. Children will love making Glitter Photo Jars or working on Shake-It-Up-Bag Paintings, and projects like Family Finger Puppets and Fluff-N-Puff Mobiles will keep them entertained for hours, while stretching their imaginations. Exploring the process of creating art is one of the most creative ways children learn, and Art with Anything will keep children learning creatively all year long!
