It is that time of year again. When all the kiddies are heading back to public school and homeschoolers are preparing for new curriculum and lessons. Can I just say, first, how exciting it is to start a fresh new school year? I have always loved the feeling of NEW. Although we do continue our learning ALL year, it is important for me to reflect and organize for myself. I had planned (very difficult to keep plans around here), to have our “first” day of our NEW journey on Monday, August the 13th. Well, we had some things come up and had to postpone it for another week. The kids were okay with it because we have been spending our week in the water and surviving this heat.
Things to come…
A few things I have planned this year are, to finish some of the last years’ history and math activities, a brand NEW science lesson, exploring new words with my 1st grader, lots of crafts and so much more! I must balance all of this with a toddler and things to keep him busy as well. There will be no such thing as boredom in this house.
Oh, and guess what???
I have a special and fun review and simple activity to share. Recently, Pencil Grip Inc. contacted me to try out there awesome mess-free paint. Of course, I said yes. We love anything to do with Art! Mess-free is even better 😀
They are very much like pastels and go one very smoothly. They really are mess-free. However, I am not sure I would consider them to be like paint. Well, not like the paint you may be thinking of. For example, acrylic or water-colors. It is actually Solid Tempera paint. It can be used on paper, posters, wood and more. They are also non-toxic.
More information: No water needed, bright vibrant colors, dries almost instantly, and Nut, Egg & Gluten Free.
We received the Metalix colors. I believe these do as they claim and my youngest (6&8) children loved them the most. My oldest daughters (10 and up) didn’t enjoy them as much, as they are into more detailed art with acrylics. Honestly, I love them as a Mom! I can allow my littles to use them whenever they feel the urge to get creative, without worrying about the mess. I no longer have to tell them to wait for me to help. They can just have at it!
So, you will have to determine what will work best for your children. Age is a big factor. They are fat like regular sized glue sticks. Perfect for little hands!
