Art Project and School Supplies

We're getting all artsy fartsy around here.  This was a cute, quick art project.

I read a blog post over at Rowdy in First Grade on the book Rabbityness and the art project Jennifer did with her kiddos.  I  knew we had to try it out.This is an amazing book FYI.  It deals with individuality and experiencing loss is such a subtle, beautiful way.

Only problem, no water colors.  Boo hoo.

However-I did happen to receive a very nice e-mail from MPM School Supplies.  They offered me $25 worth of school supplies to try out their company and let y'all know what I thought of it.  Problem solved!

So, late late on Saturday night (okay, it was actually Sunday by that point), I ordered six sets of these babies:

Prang's the best when it comes to water colors.  Sorry Crayola.  I still love your crayons.

The MPM School Supplies site was easy breezy to navigate.  Six sets put me $0.08 over plus shipping, but it was worth it. 


That was a nice little surprise.  I love me some free shipping.

Then I waited.  And Wednesday this package arrived with my goodies.

Can you believe I ordered this on the weekend and it was at my house on Wednesday?  

Look at these beauties:

We don't squeeze in time to do this sort of project often, but I wish I did.  One of my kiddos came up to me later to give me a hug and thank me for letting them "do that painting thing."

  2. This project was adorable! One of the kiddos tried to give me hers, but I insisted her parents see it first! If it was my child, I would use this to make Easter Cards or Note Cards at Vista Print. Too cute!
