    Art For Kids

    Summer is the perfect time for enjoying a book with the whole family. One of our favorites is about wintertime, and reading it is a great way to cool off on a hot day. Wolf in the Snow, by Matthew Cordell, is the 2018 Caldecott Medal winner for most distinguished American Picture Book of the year.

    We here at Oopsy Daisy love keeping track of the Caldecott Medal books, since we love books for kids almost as much as we love art for kids. The great thing about kids' art is that it sparks kids' imagination. The artwork on a child's wall can inspire a whole lifetime of stories and ideas.

    So in honor of Wolf in the Snow and summertime reading, we'd like to share some of our favorite art for kids' imaginations, and their walls! You can shop our site by theme, so it's easy to find the perfect art for the kids in your life, whether they love dinosaurs or dancing, sports or the circus. Here are a few others:

    For Kids Who Love Animals

    Sweet baby animals or exotic wild animals--find the animals that will spark your child's imagination. Invite your child to name the animals and make up adventures for them. Your art will inspire your own bedtime stories.

    For Space-Loving Kids

    Space art is so much fun! What sorts of adventures can your child dream up by looking at space art every night? He or she may be inspired to go see our vast Milky Way first-hand.

    Kids Who Love Words

    We've got all sorts of alphabet art for kids who like letters and words. Maybe your child will grow up to create a Caldecott winner some day!

    It's time to embark on unforgettable summer adventures!

    Summer marks the season of travel, where many of us will collect a passport full of stamps, take hundreds of photos and return home with trinkets to decorate our living spaces. After the dust has settled and our schedules return back to normal, there’s no better way to relive your adventures than with a pushpin travel map.

    A pushpin travel map allows you to creatively showcase your past travels, upcoming adventures and plan for your next dream destination all in one place. Many maps are costly and simply purchasing one can lack the sentiment that goes into creating your own. That’s why Car Rentals created this beautiful step-by-step guide that walks you through how to create your very own pushpin travel map complete with examples, materials and custom printables to help save you the money all while adding a piece of unique art to your walls that matches both your travel and living style.

    Whether you choose to create one for yourself or gift to family and friends, using this simple DIY guide makes the process a breeze. They also include a handful of free pinning legends to match the aesthetic of your map. Learn how to create a pushpin travel map from scratch using their simple step-by-step tutorial to walk you through the process!

  • Relax, It's Summer!

    Relax, It's Summer!

     

    Summer is finally upon us. What are your plans for summer vacation? We always like to take at least one day off before heading into summer. You have had a long school year, and you deserve a little time to relax. It's summer! Here are some ideas for taking a break.

    Read a Book (Outside)

    Grab a blanket and sit under a tree. Go to the park and find an empty bench. Sit on the front steps of your building. Wherever you live, find a little spot where you can sit in the fresh air and read.

    Star Gaze

    You can do this outside lying on a blanket. But all you really need is a window with a view of the sky. Or, if you live in a city with lots of lights even at night, find a big star book at the library. It's so relaxing, just gazing at stars and thinking about how far away they are. And if you're outside, you may see stars closer to the ground, in the form of fireflies!

    Make a Chalk Drawing

    Find a driveway or a sidewalk and grab some chalk. Create your own outdoor art! Our favorite thing about chalk art is that even after you've finished and gone home, your creations will still be there to make people smile.

    Have a Snack

    With all that relaxing, you're bound to get hungry. Here's a link to our Pinterest board, Silly Snacks. A fun way to refuel!

    Have a relaxing kickoff to your summer. Check back here all summer long for fun ideas and crafts to make this summer great.
