Kid's Art Activity; Making a Barn

Today was Arts Festival Day at the Phoenixville Farmer's Market which takes place the second Saturday of each month in the spring, summer, and fall. This is my second year conducting kids creative activites for the festivals and I was happy to be there today.

Today we made farms. I cut out red barns from red construction paper, including doors and upper windows both with flaps for opening and closing. I glued them onto white paper, then gave them to the kids to create their own little farm scenes.

We just happened to be sitting downwind from a Salsa Making Contest and it smelled so good all morning, and, as usual it was a fun and happy day in Phoenixville. I'll be there next month with a spider making activity. It was so popular last year, we just have to do it again.

Love that scarecrow!

Starting November I will be conducting ArtyPantz Creative Family Activites starting the third Saturday of October from 10 a.m. to 12:00 p.m at the fabulous Earth Mart in Phoenixville. Stay tuned for more information on that.........

That's a great idea and the kid's work is adorable! How wonderful for you to share your time and self to help.

This is a great idea and probably gives some children an opportunity to create art that they may not have had.
