Help! What Activities Do I Do with My Children?

Help! What Activities Do I Do with My Children?

As most parents look for activities to keep the children occupied while school is cancelled, you don’t want just any activity but something meaningful.

Art is a great activity that works on fine motor skills, creativity, imagination, learning how to follow directions, exploration, color theory and so much more. As my Mom always said, “it feeds the soul”.

Ceramics is an age old activity. The modern version of ceramics is the Paint-Your-Own-Pottery studios which can be done at home.  PYOP studios offer Pottery To Go Kits and curb side pick up.

Find a studio near you.  Look at their online store, pick a package, place an order, schedule a pick up time and glaze your H-art out! Once the pottery is returned the fabulous studio owner will do the behind the scenes magic to fire the pottery in a kiln and turn your project into a one-of-a-kind piece of art.

Do you have birthdays coming up? How about a Pottery Painting Party? Need to make a gift? Make it personal and heart felt! Need a little family time? Families that paint together – stay together! Spend time together making memories that will last a lifetime.

Bubble Trouble

Bubble Trouble

Bubble blowing is one of those incredibly fun things that once it shows up in the studio, EVERYONE wants to give it a try. While it’s a great choice for kids, but one of the best things is seeing grown ups giggle through their first taste of this terrific technique! 😀

Check out a video from a studio in Maryland on how the bubble technique is done!

Suffice it to say, bubbles are the best😀 While we love using bubbles as a background for ocean themed pieces, you can use them as your design element as well– that’s what we did when we created the Hydrangea platter below!

If you’d like to give this awesome technique a try, stop by your local studio and helpful staff will be happy to walk you through how to create. Just know that when you bubble, you quickly become the envy of the entire studio. 😉 I’d say 99% of the time, a phone quickly makes it’s way out to take a video for Facebook! Just don’t forget to tag your favorite studio so they can see you in action!
