Mom: Help! Any suggestions for activities for the kids to make it through the winter blues of February?
Mallory: Every. Single. Homeschooling. Mom. is wondering the same things . Seriously can’t wait for spring to get here so we can go outside regularly.
What is most fun is the fact that this cardboard box house is an art project made of salvaged cardboard boxes (free) and old food boxes from cereal and crackers. Other than that it is just paint and glue!
Special thanks to Laura Ayars and her boys for this project.
*This project definitely needs adult supervision. Recommended for age 10 and above. Continue reading “Cardboard House Art Project”

Tacky is getting ready to eat his fish sandwich! This 🎨#artproject 🎨 from Homeschool Christian Mom FB group is Acrylic on Canvas.
Get FREE instant access to my teaching videos to help you manage your time with your kids, teach effectively and keep your cool while homeschooling. My new 🎨🎨 #artprojects 🎨 encourages creativity and adds fun.
Materials: canvas, tracing paper, pencil, eraser, acrylic paints, paint brushes (narrow, medium and large), plate for paint, water and a picture from a children’s book.*
I recommend wearing an apron when using acrylics as they change from liquid to a plastic. You can only get it out of clothing if you scrub it off right away.
- First I painted the whole canvas white.
- I used the tracing paper to copy the picture, scribbled with pencil on the back and then used that to transfer the picture to my canvas.
- I added extra water to the acrylic paint for the background colors.
- Then working from light colors to darker colors, I began painting.
- Project is suitable for 5th grade and up.
