Oopsy Daisy, Fine Art For Kids

  • Celebrate Global Art on United Nations Day!

    Global Art is important, because kids of all walks of life need to see what the world looks like. And we here at Oopsy Daisy think it's more fun, too, to be surrounded by art that reflects all sorts of people back at you.

    The most globally diverse organization in the world is the United Nations, also known as the UN. Sunday, October 25 is United Nations Day, and this year is the 70th anniversary of the UN.

    Here are some facts about the United Nations:

    There are 193 Sovereign Member States in the UN.

    The Secretary-General of the UN is Ban Ki-moon.

    The name "United Nations" was coined by US President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1942.

    There are 6 official languages of the UN: Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian, and Spanish.

    What does global art mean? It means art that includes subject-matter from lots of different countries, backgrounds, and experiences. Come shop our site and click on "global" in the topic list to see art for kids' rooms that includes all sorts of globally culturally diverse subject-matter.

    Happy United Nations Day!

     

  • 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!

  • 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!

  • 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!

     

  • Apple Art for Johnny Appleseed Day

    If your child hasn't met Johnny Appleseed yet, you probably don't live in the Midwest. (Kids in the Midwest learn about Johnny Appleseed in grade school.) In honor of his holiday, we'd like to share some of our apple art with you. We also have some interesting facts about Johnny Appleseed:

    Who was Johnny Appleseed?

    He was a nurseryman. That's a person who works planting or harvesting trees. His real name was John Chapman.

    When was he born?

    Johnny Appleseed was born on September 26, 1774, meaning that his holiday is on the anniversary of his birth.

    What did Johnny Appleseed do?

    He is known for planting apple trees. At the time he lived, "the West" was anything west of Pennsylvania. Johnny Appleseed went West, planting apple trees and preaching in states like Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, and Illinois. He was known to be a very humble man, and didn't take money for preaching or for planting.

    How can we celebrate Johnny Appleseed Day?

    That's easy: eat an apple! Also, we recommend celebrating by checking out our apple art. It's an ideal way to keep Johnny's spirit alive all year!

  • Pirate Art for Talk Like a Pirate Day!

     

    Ahoy, Mateys!

    September 19 is International Talk Like a Pirate Day. This storied holiday was first celebrated in 1995 by pals John Baur and Mark Summers (aka Ol’ Chumbucket and Cap’n Slappy). In the twenty years since then, this in-joke among friends has turned into a day of parties and dressing up all around the country.

    In honor of this pirate-themed holiday, we are highlighting some of our favorite Pirate Art, along with a glossary that will help you and your kids talk like a pirate:

    Avast!

    This means stop what you're doing and pay attention (something that parents of toddlers find themselves repeating all day long)!

    Grog

    This is what pirates drink. Technically, it's rum diluted with water, but juice boxes work just as well.

    Lubber

    This is a person who stays on land. Or it might be the person who stays on the living-room floor while the rest of the family is aboard the pirate ship, er, couch.

    Check out our Pirate Art for more ideas, like Jessica Flick's Ahoy On the Open Seas, which labels the parts of a pirate ship, or follow Donna Ingemanson's Secret Treasure Map, which leads you right to the booty (that's pirate-speak for treasure!).

    Happy International Talk Like a Pirate Day, Mateys!

     

  • Grandparents Day is Here!

    Grandparents Day is this Sunday!

    It's observed the first Sunday after Labor Day and it's a terrific time to celebrate some of the most important people in our kids' lives (whether they're actual family members or older, beloved friends and neighbors). Here are some fun ways to celebrate Grandparents Day:

    Send Some Flowers: Pick them, draw them, have them delivered: Forget-me-Nots are the official flower of Grandparents Day. (Check out our floral art here!)

    Cook Up Some Memories: What is Grandma's favorite meal? What kind of cookies does Grandpa like best? Invite them into the kitchen and cook them together. Or recreate a favorite recipe they used to love when they were kids.

    Sing a Happy Song: What songs were popular when Nana and Pop-Pop were little? When they were teenagers? Create a CD of their old favorites, and throw in a few of your favorite songs for them to enjoy!

    Reach Out: Contact your Grandparents, either by phone, Skype, or in person. The most important way to celebrate is to let them know you love them!

  • 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?).

  • Eli Halpin: A Nature-Lover Creates Wildly Collectible Art

    If you could step into one of Eli Halpin’s nature paintings, you’d be stepping into an important part of her life. Eli (short for Elizabeth) grew up in Alaska, and a little bit of the 20 years she spent there ends up in nearly everything she paints.

    Eli is a rare artist whose work appeals to an especially wide market, including parents looking for art for a baby’s wall, teens wanting canvas wall art for a dorm room, and dedicated art collectors looking for a dramatic statement piece of oversized wall art. How does one artist appeal to so many people? Her secret has to do with her view of nature, a view that embraces both the wild and the tame.

    For instance, here's what she says about her own dog, Cashius: When asked to complete the sentence “I really shouldn’t, but…” she responds: “I really shouldn’t squeeze my dog’s cheeks one more time but I’m going to do it anyway.” Cute and cuddly, right? Yes, but consider that Cashius is a 110-pound Rottweiler who eats raw meat. Now you get an idea of the extreme views of nature Halpin incorporates into her work.

    “I grew up fly-fishing in the woods with bears that could eat you and eagles that could take little babies away—lots of danger, just being in the woods and around the river, with moose walking in the front yard—everything could kill you there,” she says. That view of nature is evident in works like Four Wolves Howling and The Chase.

    On the other hand, Eli says, she does have “a lot of more innocent paintings,” pieces like Deer Love and Bunnies in the Woods, which contain the insight of an artist who learned to coexist with wild animals, reflected in their gentle eyes.

    While these extremes seem like two different worlds, to the artist they are part of a whole, just like Cashius. “It’s all the same idea,” she says. “I like to paint about animals eating together, living together, working together—cheeks, paws, whiskers, and claws. I don’t see them as being separate, but they definitely have different places as far as the art market.”

    At Green Box, Oopsy Daisy, and Wheatpaste, Eli Halpin’s work is available in a number of creative ways: on stretched canvas, as a poster or wall decal, as a growth chart, pillow, lamp or night light. (Her originals are painted on hollow-core wood doors, each of which is certified as coming from a responsibly managed forest.) This wide selection of venues for displaying her art, as well as the wide selection of art pieces available (we have over 110 to choose from), means that art lovers of every age and personal style can own a piece of Eli Halpin art.

    And there's always more art to come from Eli Halpin:

    "I get inspiration from everywhere," she says, "and I feel like there’s an infinite amount of inspiration—there’s so many ideas of things to paint that I could never paint them all."

    So keep checking back with Green Box, Oopsy Daisy, and Wheatpaste to see what Eli Halpin and her boundless imagination will create next.
