  • Oopsy Daisy's Very Hungry Staff Celebrates Eric Carle's Very Hungry Caterpillar Day

    Around here, we love a reason to celebrate. So, with Eric Carle's The Very Hungry Caterpillar Day right around the corner (March 20) we had a picnic in honor of that little guy with all of his delicious favorites on the menu to feed our Very Hungry Staff! It was a Vegetarian lunch with foods mentioned in Eric Carle's beloved book, like cherry pie, lollipops, cup cakes, strawberries, apples, oranges, and all those types of delightful goodies.  To keep the presentation playful, all the grapes, cucumber slices and cupcakes were arranged in the shapes of caterpillars. We simply felt it was necessary to take every opportunity to honor The Very Hungry Caterpillar Day in all it's treasured glory, and keep it FUN.

    While The Very Hungry Caterpillar Day is a perfect excuse to have an Eric Carle's The Very Hungry Caterpillar themed party, it's also a perfect theme for any birthday party, summer party, back to school party, etc. ! The decor is bright and fun, it gives you incentive to serve your guests a healthier selection of party treats, and think of the fun games and activities you can put together!

    Our activities included "Pin the Antennae on the Caterpillar" and "Create the Best PLAY-DOH Caterpillar" for prizes. It's fun to see the creativity of each participant with their supply of PLAY-DOH making big caterpillars, small caterpillars, flat, tall, and rainbow caterpillars! To pin an antenna on a caterpillar, we used one of our giclée canvas prints of Eric Carle's The Very Hungry Caterpillar, cut out antennae shaped colorful papers adding a little tape, added a blindfold to the contestants, and voila! This is a simple and safe game that definitely got some laughs from our crew!

    Lastly, our team challenge involved groups of employees gathering together to create tissue paper collage masterpieces inspired by Eric Carle's characteristic style. The results weren't quite as spectacular as The Master's, but we had a blast! The winners in this competition received a small army of caterpillars to care for while they mature (which is typically 7-10 days), at which time they get to release them as butterflies! The event was a hit, and we can't wait for the butterfly release.

    Whether it's home décor or party décor, we are all about it! So, we had a great time getting crafty with party decorations, and our kids' wall décor line of Eric Carle artwork fit in perfectly wi15th the festivities.

  • Friday the 13th

    Today is Friday the 13th, and last night was a full moon (the Wolf Moon). If you are a superstitious person, that's a double whammy! Here are some interesting facts about both events.

    paraskavedekatriaphobia

    Do you have paraskavedekatriaphobia? That means a fear of Friday the thirteenth. If you do, you're not alone. Here are some interesting facts about Friday the 13:

    -There were said to be 13 people at The Last Supper, and President Theodore Roosevelt reportedly refused to ever have 13 people at a meal, or to travel on Friday the 13th.

    -Plane tickets often cost less if you want to fly on Friday the 13th. That's because lots of people refuse to fly on this day!

    -Next time you get on the elevator of a tall building, take a look at the numbers. Is there a floor 13? Many buildings don't have one, because it's considered unlucky.

    selenophobia

    Do you have selenophobia? That means a fear of a full moon. Full moons are said to bring about bad luck and strange behavior, which is where the legend of the werewolf comes from. (If werewolves come out on full moons and last night's full moon was a Wolf Moon, we wonder what that means!)

    -In a 2005 study, almost 70% of nurses interviewed said they believed that a full moon resulted in more patients in the ER.

    -Some police officers think that a full moon makes people act with less regard to the law.

    -And of course, those who believe in werewolves believe that the full moon causes them to turn into these hairy beasts.

    Do you believe in bad luck? We don't. But it's fun to learn more about these events. Have a lucky day, okay?

     

  • New Years Eve Noisemakers

    New Year's Eve is all about making some noise to ring in 2017. Here are a few of our favorite, kid-friendly, New Years Eve Noisemakers. Each of these is simple to make and a fun project for the kids while the grown-ups sing Auld Lang Syne.

    Easter-Egg Maracas

    These Easter Egg Maracas are a definite case of "why didn't I think of that?" All you need are 2 plastic spoons, a plastic Easter egg, beads or rice or pennies for inside, and tape (electrical tape or duct tape works best, but masking tape will do!). Fill the egg with the noise makers, hold it between the spoon heads, and wrap in tape. That's it! Then decorate and shake, shake, shake.

    Noise Maker Cups

    You just might have some of these clear plastic cups out for the party anyway--turn them into Noise Maker Cups. Fill one with beads or pebbles, and add some tinsel or confetti. Tape the two sides together. Decorate with stickers or magic markers.

    Jingle Bell Noise Makers

    We love these jingle bell noise makers because they incorporate sleigh bells! Paint a craft stick and hot-glue three jingle bells to it. Decorate with ribbon. That's it! Jingle all the way into the new year.

    Happy New Year from all of us at Oopsy Daisy, Fine Art for Kids!

     

  • Election Day!

    Election Day is Tuesday, November 8! Every year in the United States, elections are on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November. You may be having mock elections at school, and you probably know the name of at least one or two people who are running for President. But did you know that there is an election day every November, even when there is no Presidential election? On the years when our country is not electing a new president, we still hold elections for positions including school board members, mayors, senators, judges, representatives, and for issues like school levys.

    Election Day Facts

    Here are some other interesting Election Day facts:

    We have never had a president whose last name began with the letter S. (There are other letters that's true for as well, but S is a very common letter!)

    Women received the right to vote in 1920.

    The voting age was lowered to 18 in 1971.

    Abraham Lincoln was our nation's tallest president. He was 6'4".

    Ask an adult if you can come with him or her to the polls. It's interesting to see our election process at work!

    And take a look at some of our patriotic art, perfect for election day or any day. All our art is proudly made in the USA.

  • 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!

  • Hooray for The Olympics!

  • Summer Fun Times Two!

    Summer fun is twice as nice this week! June 18 is International Picnic Day and International Go Fishing Day. It's a perfect chance to combine two favorite summer fun activities into one unforgettable day.

    Bring a picnic with you and go fishing, or catch a fish and cook it up for a picnic! If you can't go fishing, how about picnicking before or after a trip to the aquarium, or packing a picnic to take along to a pond?

    Here are three ways to bring favorite foods along to a picnic. There are all one-hand treats, so you can have the other hand free to hold the fishing pole!

    Chip Bags: use regular brown paper bags (maybe there are some left over from packing school lunches!) and trim them so they're about half as tall as before. Use fancy scalloped scissors for a fun look. Then fill the bags with individual portions of popcorn or chips.

    Fruit Salad Cones: Ice-cream cones aren't just for ice cream anymore! Fill a few with cut-up fruit for a fruits salad in an edible container.

    Ants on a Log: It's a classic for a reason! These super-simple snacks (fill celery with peanut butter and dot some raisins on top) are ideal for a picnic because they're healthy, easy to eat, and a funny nod to the ants-and-picnic cliche (as in, it's not a successful picnic without them!).

    Have a terrific week. Enjoy your Summer Fun day and here's to many more! (and here's some picnic art and some fishing art we think you'll enjoy)

  • Summer Vacation!

    It's time for Summer Vacation at last! We love these next few months of outdoor fun, including everything from hammocks and green grass to rocky trails and the seashore. We've collected a bunch of fun summer vacation ideas over on our Pinterest site on our Venture Out! page.

    Make s'mores popcorn, plan a backyard campout, create a summer journal. These are a few of the ideas you'll find to help kick off your Summer Vacation in style!

    And here's a little something to kick things off: a scavenger hunt list! Print this out and grab some friends. Then see if you can find each of these items somewhere outside. You can even make it a contest by splitting into groups, setting a time limit (maybe an hour), and seeing which group can find the most items before time is up. Don't forget to give everyone a paper bag for collecting the items. And have fun!

    A feather

    A bottlecap

    A penny

    A four-leaf clover

    A purple flower

    A leaf that's shaped like the state you live in (use your imagination on this one!)

     

    And come by our site to take a look at some of our favorite nature-themed art for kids' rooms.

    Let Summer Vacation begin!

  • National Farmers Day is October 12 - Celebrate!

    October 12 is National Farmers Day!

    The holiday was once known as Old Farmers Day. It has been around since the 1800s, although no one remembers exactly when it started or who started it. The holiday takes place at a good time for farmers, since this time of year is toward the end of the harvest, one of the only times a busy farmer can take a little break!

    The holiday celebrates everyone around the country who works to grow food for us.

    Ways to celebrate National Farmers Day:

    1. Go to a Farmers Market! Go see what your local farmers are growing and buy what they're selling. A farmers market is a great way to learn about food, so be sure to ask the farmer questions, like - How do I know what is fresh? Or - Do you have a favorite recipe for this food?
    2. Eat! Enjoy your food and think about the people who grow it.
    3. Browse some Farm Art! You can search for different topics on our site, and one of those is Farm. You'll find art about cows, tractors, vegetables, roosters, and just about everything else that makes a farm run. Happy National Farmers Day!
