I am seriously contemplating adding a young contributing writer to this blog. Wouldn’t it be nice to actually hear ideas on scrapbooking and crafting with kids straight from the kids themselves?
Throughout my seven years of homeschooling, Fridays have been designated as the ‘artsy day’, where I would bring out templates of art materials from our curriculum and, depending on their grade level, allow freedom of artist expression on choice of colours, styles, and even overall design. It always impresses me how children can come up with extensions to my original ideas, many times better and more creative than the instructions provided in the lesson templates.
And that’s what leads me to wondering if the voice (and writing) from one of the children might be of value to us as we learn new ideas on more effective crafting with kids.
What do you think?
