I am officially the coolest tita in the eyes of my pamangkins. Hehe. Collecting those make-and-do books, seeing treasure in what to most people is trash and staying up late checking out craft blogs finally paid off. Now I have more reason to collect kiddie craft books and more trash with potential.
Some of the artsy fartsy stuff we did back in Elbi
From fuzzy wires and pompoms, Jyl and Rock were able to make bangles, “spring queen” and a sea horse.
Jyl calls this “Hearts on Air”
Using fabric crayons
We gave our old sandos a make over. Rock calls his drawing Abrock (abstract)
From paper, we made paper lanterns
and a crazy necklace.
Toy Telephone from dirty ice cream cups
Hands down, everyone’s favorite art activity was….
Sidewalk chalk drawing!
I have been looking for sidewalk chalks locally but did not find any. I tried ordinary chalk on our Paranaque garage and found the drawing too light. Now I know the secret. It is the surface that matters. Our garage is very rough while my mom’s is quite smooth. (mental note: discuss garage renovation project with Franco)
This is Jyl’s drawing of me..
And this is Aki drawing. He drew on the chairs, plants, wheels of our van
I hope Aki would also see me as a cool mom someday.
More on Akira Art on my next post.
