  • Science Art for Earth Science Week

    This is the ideal week to take a look at some of our favorite Science Art for Kids, because this is Earth Sciences Week! And the Wednesday of Science Week is National Fossil Day, so there's a lot to celebrate.

    We've got some interesting facts about fossils and science for you in honor of Earth Science Week and National Fossil Day!

    Fossil comes from "fossilis," a Latin word that means "dug up."

    Fossilized bones aren't bones at all, because rock replaces nearly all the bone material.

    See our Dinosaur Art for some pre-fossil dinos!

    Every year, Hawaii moves about 10 centimeters closer to Japan.

    Oceans cover around 70% of the earth

    Check out some of our map art to see what we're talking about!

    Compared to the other planets in our solar system, Venus spins backwards.

    A person who weighs 200 pounds on earth would weigh 76 pounds on Mars. This is because gravity is different on Mars.

    Our outer space art is out of this world. Come see!

    Can you find other interesting facts about earth and outer space? There is so much to learn, and National Earth Science Week is the perfect time to do so!

  • April Showers Bring May Flowers

    April showers bring May flowers. One of our favorite little saying because it's a nice reminder that there's a reward waiting after Spring rains. Plus, as you can see from our website, we love flowers! So now that we're in the middle of May, with flowers in bloom, let's find out about what different flowers mean:

    Pansy: Pansies stand for love and remembrance. Giving someone a pansy means "I love you and I admire you."

    Sunflower: Sunflowers stand for dedication. A gift of a sunflower means "I am always here for you."

    Rose: Roses stand for love. A red rose is romantic while a yellow rose is friendship. Giving a bouquet means "I love you so very much!"

    Cherry Blossom: Cherry blossoms signify spring. They also represent the beauty of life. Giving someone a cherry blossom means "You are beautiful and I hope your life will be too."

    There are many more flowers that have special meanings. Can you find some out? Do you have a favorite flower? Find out what it means. And you can always search for your favorite flower (or even your favorite color!) on our website. We love flowers, and we have lots of flower art to celebrate spring.

    Happy May!

  • Washington's Birthday!

    Do you know what February 22 is? It's Washington's birthday. Here are some fun facts about George Washington:

    He was born in 1732.

    He was our country's first President, serving two terms from 1789-1797.

    Washington was 6 feet, 2 inches tall. He was one of our tallest presidents ever.

    He had a dog named True Love and one named Sweet Lips.

    It's not known whether he actually ever chopped down a cherry tree as a child. The story is that he cut one down and when his father asked who had done it, young George answered, "I cannot tell a lie. I cut down the cherry tree." Whether or not this story is true, it is an interesting legend. It tells us something about our nation's first president: he was known to be a very honest person.

    We here at Oopsy Daisy are interested in US history. We have a whole collection of American-history art for kids rooms, from map art to presidential art. And all of our art is made n the USA, just like George Washington!

     

  • New Year's Resolutions for Kids!

    In 2016, lots of adults make new year's resolutions. But how about New Year's Resolutions for Kids? At Oopsy Daisy we think kids are pretty terrific as they are. But lots of kids are asked, at school or at home, "what's your new year's resolution?" Some kids may decide to study more, or to keep their room clean. Or maybe to get outside and play!

    We've got some ideas for New Year's resolutions for kids, as well as a few ways to keep those resolutions.

    Study More: If your resolution is to study more, it's not too hard to do! Just find yourself a quiet spot and set it up as your study space. If you don't have your own desk, that's okay. Maybe it's a corner of your room or maybe it's a spot at the kitchen table. Make that your work spot and try not to use it for anything else. Once you set a pattern of using that space to study, you may find that your mind automatically switches into "study mode" whenever you sit there! We've got some fun art that can help you learn, too, like map art and alphabet art.  It's a perfect way to decorate your study spot!

    Keep Your Room Clean: It's your spot (or maybe your spot with a brother or sister), and you can keep it nice and clean if you want to. Start by making your bed every morning. And every evening, set a timer for five minutes. Just five! Spend those minutes tidying. And before you know it, these two simple steps will help you keep your room nice and neat. Here's another way to keep your room tidy: take a look at our selection of wall decals! They are like giant stickers for your wall. If you ever want to re-do your room, you can peel off the decal and move it wherever you'd like.

    Get Outside and Play: This one is so easy! If you want to get more exercise, just move around. If it's too cold to go outside, or if there's no outdoor space where you like to play, put on some music and dance, dance, dance. We've got some fun art to help you get pumped to exercise, too.

    Happy New Year!

  • National Reptile Awareness Day

    Reptile Art Makes Every Day National Reptile Awareness Day!

    October 21 is National Reptile Awareness Day! This unofficial holiday celebrates reptiles of all kinds. It's not just for people who already love reptiles, it's for everyone who wants to learn more about them.

    It's a pretty well-known fact that kids love these little creatures. Dinosaurs, snakes, lizards--we're willing to bet that the person in your life who knows most about them is probably a kid. That's why we at Oopsy Daisy love our collection of Reptile Art--including Dinosaur Art. We have art that educates in the form of charts and diagrams, displays in the form of realistic illustration, and celebrate in the form of fun, artsy, interpretation.

    Here are a few facts that you can use to impress the reptile fan in your life:

    Q: Is a reptile a mammal or a bird?
    A: A reptile is neither!

    Q: Are reptiles warm-blooded or cold-blooded?
    A: Reptiles are cold-blooded.

    Q: What is the scientific term for the plates or shells that reptiles have?
    A: This outer covering is called a scute (examples are turtle shells or crocodile skin).

    Whether your little ones know a lot or are just learning the facts, Oopsy Daisy has Reptile Art and Dinosaur Art they'll love!

  • Smile Big!

    Happy World Smile Day! :)

    The first Friday in October is World Smile Day and we here at Oopsy Daisy couldn’t be happier about it.

    The whole reason we do what we do—curate and sell fine art for kids—is to bring smiles to people’s faces.  Whether it’s discovering a new favorite artist, receiving a personalized growth chart to celebrate the birth of a baby, or seeing your own name in art, we are all about it!

    So here’s some info all about this day, along with some smile-making art to help you celebrate.

    Who started World Smile Day?

    American artist Harvey Ball, who created the iconic yellow smiley face, started the holiday in 1999.

    What's the slogan of the day?

    “Improving the world, one smile at a time.”

    How can we celebrate?

    Most importantly, share a smile today. It will make other people happy! And you can ask your mom or dad to show you some happy smiley posts from social media using #WorldSmileDay.

    How can we turn World Smile Day into not just a day but the whole year?

    We suggest finding some art that will make you smile year ‘round! How about some circus art or sweet animal art or art for your favorite sport? Or keep track of how much you grow between today and next year’s World Smile Day. That will definitely make a parent smile!

     

  • Labor Day, Hip-Hooray!

    Happy Labor Day to All!

    Labor Day can be a bit confusing to kids. First of all, what's labor mean? It's not an everyday word anymore. Second, why does a day about work mean a day off from school? Here are some interesting facts about the day that you can share with your kids on their school-free Monday.

    What is Labor?

    Labor, as most adults (and all moms!) know, means work. Hard work.

    What exactly does Labor Day celebrate?

    It is a national holiday that celebrates workers. The United States Department of Labor explains that the holiday is a "yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country."

    When is Labor Day?

    It's always the first Monday in September.

    Who invented Labor Day?

    That's an interesting question! Some people think it was a man named Peter J. McGuire, who was a carpenter, first suggested the holiday. Other people think it was Matthew Maguire, a machinist from New Jersey, who first proposed the idea. Either way, Congress made it a national holiday in 1894.

    Why do so many people still have to work on Labor Day?

    Labor Day is a national holiday, which means that many governmental workers (mail carriers, for example) get the day off. All other businesses get to decide for themselves whether or not to remain open on Labor Day.

    Now that you know all about Labor Day, come on over to the Oopsy Daisy site and take a look at our fine art for kids' rooms.

    In honor of the holiday, you can save 15% off your order through September 8!

     

  • Outer Space Art is Out of This World!

    We love outer space art.

    What a terrific way to expand kids' imagination--literally! So we were thrilled to learn that August 29 is the 50th Anniversary of the Gemini V Flight.

    Gemini V was a space flight manned by L. Gordon Cooper, Jr. and Charles "Pete" Conrad, Jr. The flight lasted 8 days (actually, 7 days, 22 hours, 55 minutes, 14 seconds!), the amount of time it would take to fly to, land on, and return from the Moon.

    While this flight might not be as famous as some other outer space adventures, this test-run helped scientists gather a lot of information that would eventually help get the first men on the Moon.

    So, join us in celebrating the 50th anniversary of this groundbreaking space flight. We've assembled a few examples of our outer space art here, and we've got lots more on our site (including outer-space themed night lights - what better way to light your little one's path to the window so she can gaze out at the moon?).

  • Back to School Art Is Everywhere!

    Way to go, Alice!

    Back to school means back to books and desks and classrooms...for many kids, at least. But what does it mean to kids around the world? There's a wonderful recent book that answers the question of what school days are like for kids across the globe, and it's illustrated by one of our favorite Oopsy Daisy artists, Alice Feagan!

    School Days Around the World, written by Margriet Ruurs and published by Kids Can Press, profiles Marta in Azezo, Ethiopia, Luciano in Mérida, Venezuela, and Alina in Taraz, Kazakhstan (among other kids and places around the world). Alice's vibrant images bring the book to life.

    School Days Around the World by Alice Feagan School Days Around the World by Alice Feagan

    To celebrate back to school, here and wherever kids are sharpening their pencils and tying their school shoes, we have a sale on Back-to-School art and all our other art that sparks kids' imaginations. Be sure to check out our collection of Alice Feagan's work, including educational art like her Super Solar System, pictured here (and read last week's blog post to find out about the exciting link between art and learning!).

    From all of us here at Oopsy Daisy, here's wishing you a great school year.

  • Can Art Help Kids Learn? Yes!

    A study in 2014 proved what lots of parents and educators had long suspected: yes, art can help kids learn.

    Specifically, the study, published in EducationNext, showed that “taking students to an art museum improved critical thinking skills, and more.” Even one visit, the study found, made “a definite impression on students,” one of the researches said. For the study, one visit consisted of looking at 5 paintings over the course of 1 hour, with no lecture.

    We here at Oopsy Daisy have long believed that art does wonders for a child’s mind and imagination: that art helps kids learn. But to find out that just looking at art for a few minutes can help develop a child’s critical thinking skills? Well, we were thrilled.

    Because we have a wide assortment of educational art that kids love and that looks terrific on their walls. And now we know, scientifically, that being exposed to this art on a daily basis is good for their brains. Talk about a win-win!

    Here’s some of our favorite educational art for kids, just in time for back-to-school (along with a few tips on how to share it with your child):
