  • Holiday Crafts for Kids

    Winter is here! And with it brings our favorite holiday crafts for kids. As you count down to the holidays, here are some very easy and very cute crafts the whole family can make together. We've provided instructions for each, and for more details you can click on the link for each one to go to the original site where we found it.

    Cotton Ball Snowmen

    Cotton ball snowmen are ideal to make just about any old day. That's because you most likely have all these items on hand: cotton balls, construction paper, glue, and magic markers. That's it! Draw a snowman shape (or download a template from the link) and use that as the guide to glue in cotton balls. You can decorate the snowman with buttons or glitter or cut-out hats or beads, or you can use those magic markers. Easy-peasy.

    Candy Cane Chenille Stick Ornaments

    These candy cane beaded ornaments look great on gifts, doorknobs, and of course, Christmas trees! Just take a green chenille stick (that's a pipe cleaner, for those of us of a certain age!) and string it with red and white craft beads. This is the ideal size for little hands, since the holes in the beads and the chenille sticks are both nice and big. Crimp the ends so the beads don't fall off and bend the stick into a candy cane shape. Voila!

    Hand Print Wreath

    This hand print wreath is pretty lovely, don't you think? All you need is green construction paper (two different shades look extra nice), red construction paper, glue, and ribbon. If you'd like a little more stability, cut out a cardboard ring to glue everything onto. Trace your child's hand onto the paper and cut around it. Double up a couple sheets so you only have to make half as many cuts. Then glue the hands overlapping, into a circle. decorate with red holly berry circles, and once it's dry, hang with a pretty ribbon. A lovely gift!

    Most of all, have fun with these holiday crafts for kids. They're perfect for long days off from school or evenings when the grownups want to get together and celebrate.

    And if you love art for kids, come see what we've got at Oopsy Daisy. We know you'll find some art you love.

    Happy Holidays!

  • Cookies for Santa

    The clock is ticking! It's time to make cookies for Santa. We leave a nice big bowl of oatmeal and some carrots for the reindeer (did you know that Santa's reindeer love uncooked oatmeal? Just pour some in a big bowl and it is gone by morning!). For Santa, there are lots of options. We know he loves cookies of any kind, but why not have fun with making them?

    Here are three different types of cookies for Santa that you can make. And here's the best part: you can follow a recipe (we've included a link for each one), or you can take some shortcuts. The shortcuts are included on this page. Because time is running out! Santa is packing his sleigh right this very minute.

    reindeer cookies

    Follow the recipe here to make these super-cute reindeer cookies, or just do what we did: buy a tube of sugar cookie batter, some chocolate-covered pretzels, and some chocolate candies (like M & M's). Decorate the sugar cookies and bake according to package directions. Ta da! Maybe the reindeer will try a few with the oats. If Santa's willing to share.

    snowman hats

    These snowman hats look difficult but they don't have to be! The recipe is actually pretty simple, but we like to make it even simpler: get chocolate wafer cookies, marshmallows, and chocolate frosting.Cover the wafers with frosting. Stick the marshmallow in the center and decorate the rim of the hat with sprinkles or candies (from the baking or cake decorating aisle of the store, the kind of sugar decorations that are meant for cakes).  Then decorate with all sorts of sprinkles and candies. Fruit leather makes a great hat rim.

    peppermint thumbprints

    The recipe (here) is for red velvet cookies with peppermint tops, which sounds simply amazing. But our favorite shortcut is to mix red food coloring into sugar cookie batter (get a tube of it at the store) and then press an upside-down peppermint Hershey's Kiss into each. Bake according to package directions. Delicious!

    While you're cooking, check out our festive Santa art to get you inspired. We've included this very sweet ornament by Amy Blay to get you in the spirit, and we've got many, many more.

    Now start baking! And have fun.

  • Gift Guide for Everyone!

    Our Gift Guide is here! It's a carefully curated guide of some of our very favorite art pieces for kids and teens. Gift-giving feels overwhelming for lots of us, and we hope this gift guide will help you find the perfect piece of art for everyone on your list. Our art is Spirited, Eclectic, and Hand-Crafted, and here's a preview:

    Spirited

    There's no spirit like a child's, and our art celebrates that every day. Bright baby animals by Brett Blumenthal, inspirational phrases by Katie Daisy, and sports-themed art by some of our favorite artists: these are just a few of the ways to reflect a child's irrepressible spirit  on his or her walls.

    Eclectic

    Our collection of art is eclectic in style: we've got realistic renditions of ballerinasabstracts that tickle the imagination, and everything in between. Our art is eclectic in form, too. Many of your favorite pieces are available on ornaments, wall decals, and growth charts. And you can choose our canvases framed or unframed.

    Hand Crafted

    Every piece we sell is made by hand. One at a time. In the USA. We're proud of that. And we know you'll be proud to give the gift of Oopsy Daisy art.

    Happy Holidays and

    Happy Shopping!

  • American Housewife features Oopsy Daisy Art!

    American Housewife on ABC was already one of our favorite new shows of the season. But when we recently caught sight of Oopsy Daisy art in Anna-Kat's room we loved it even more.  English Horse Show by Donna Ingemanson hangs in the youngest Otto's room (played by Julia Butters).

    Our customers love this print too, with C. Jacqueline raving that it's "so cute and colorful!!" (note the double exclamation points - that's some serious enthusiasm!)

    Come see more of Donna Ingemanson's art on our site. She's got a whole series of horse-themed art, along with maps and alphabet art. In fact, her subject matter is so varied, and her colors are so vibrant, that everyone will find a favorite piece.

    And thanks again to American Housewife for showing some Oopsy Daisy love!
