Oopsy Daisy, Fine Art For Kids

  • 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!

  • Personalized Placemats!

    Of all the wonderful things on the Thanksgiving table, our favorite  personalized placemats. Imagine how special each child feels to find his or her own name at the table. Even better than place cards, these personalized Thanksgiving placemats can each feature a child's favorite sport, animal, or activity.

    And the best part is that kids take their placemats home and use them year 'round, for the start of a tradition.

    Here's why we love these placemats:

    • Giftable – Our placemats make for a perfect gift and fun suprise at the kids' table
    • Portable – Roll it up and bring it along to Grandma's house or a restaurant
    • Perfect Size – Each measures 17" x 12" and is made of soft vinyl that meets phthalate safety standards
    • Easy to clean– Just a little dish soap on a non–abrasive sponge
    • Tested and complies to CPSC safety standards

    And best of all, there are so many designs to choose from. So as you think about Thanksgiving, think about our personalized placemats for kids!

     

  • Decorate with Leaves

    It's not too early to plan ways to decorate with leaves! Fall gives us such a wonderful and colorful array of colors, and we like to bring that colorful array indoors. Here are a few ways to decorate with leaves to celebrate fall:

    Leaf Rubbings: These are an oldy but a goody, and if you live in a part of the country where you don't see a lot of changing leaves, this is a fun way to make them yourself. Find some leaves with interesting veins on the bottom. Place the leaves, vein-side up, on a table and put a piece of white printer paper on top (you don't want the paper to be too thick or the pattern won't come through). Peel the paper off a crayon and lay the crayon flat on the white paper. Rub the crayon back and forth until you get a full print of the leaf on your paper. You can use crayons in fall colors, or you can experiment and make pink and purple leaves if you want!

    Hanging Glitter Leaves: This one's from our Pinterest page. Collect fallen leaves, or get fake leaves at a craft store. Put the leaves on newspaper and spray with adhesive (you can find this at a craft store). Before the adhesive dries, sprinkle glitter on the leaves. Once it's dry, turn the leaf over and do the same on the other side. Then use a hole punch to make a hole at the top and tie a ribbon through it. Hang the leaves any place that needs some glitter!

    Autumn Leaf Mason Jar Candle Holder: We found this at a terrific DIY craft site called Spark & Chemistry. You just need Modge Podge, clean jars, and leaves (either real or imitation). You use the paste to glue on the leaves, then cover the whole thing with another layer (it's called decoupage). You can decorate the jar with a bow. Once it's all dry, put a tealight candle inside and watch it glow.

    Take a look at some of the Fall Art we have on our site, and enjoy the colors of autumn as they get more and more vivid every day!

  • Apple Art and Crafts

    Apple art is a fun way to celebrate autumn. Did you know that September 17 is National Eat an Apple Day? And September 26 is Johnny Appleseed Day. With all the apple-themed celebrations in the next few days, we wanted to share some ideas of things to do with apples (and apple-themed treats!).

    And of course, since art for kids is what we're all about, we have some apple art to share with you, too.

    Apple Prints: To make these, you'll need 2 apples, poster paint, and paper plates. Cut the apples in half. Cut one top to bottom (vertically) and the other side to side (horizontally). That way, you'll get two different shapes! Put the paint on the paper plates and dip the cut side of the apple in. Then stamp away! This makes terrific wrapping paper.

    Apple "Donuts": These clever treats require a few apples, cream cheese, food coloring, and sprinkles. Slice the apples horizontally to make circles. Core each slice with a knife or a pastry tip. Mix cream cheese with food coloring, frost the apple slice, and add sprinkles! This works with peanut butter, too.

    Apple-Shaped Cupcakes: You'll find this one on our Pinterest page. It's so easy! When you pour cupcake batter into the paper liner, just put a triangle of tinfoil at the top to create an apple shape while it bakes. Once cool, use a green leaf candy (or cut a green gumdrop) and a pretzel stick to create the stem and leaf. Frost with red frosting, and there you have it. Yum!

    And now for our favorite part: the art! We have bright and cheery apple art for kids' rooms, starting of course with Eric Carle's apple from the beloved The Very Hungry Caterpillar book. We also have Jen Christopher's Hoots Hungry, Stacy Amoo-Mensah's Apple of My Eye, and many more.

  • Football Crafts for Kids!

    Football Crafts are a big part of fall for us here at Oopsy Daisy! That's because of all the great things about fall, we think High School Football is right up there with the best.

    Why do we love High School Football?  Because there's something for everybody! The football players, cheerleaders, marching band, and cheering sections offer fun for all.

    Here are some fun football crafts to help you cheer on your favorite team:

    Football Windsock: To make this you'll need a tin can with the label removed, brown spray paint, ribbons in your favorite team's colors, white tape, and a screwdriver and hammer (and, of course, an adult's help!) Spray paint the can brown, and when it dries apply white tape to resemble the lacing on the ball. Tape the ribbon pieces on the inside at the open end, where they're not visible, and make 2 holes with the screwdriver and hammer. Hang up the windsock and show your team spirit!

    DIY Pom-Poms: These require 2 plastic table cloths in your team's colors, scissors, and duct tape. Cut each tablecloth into 9X12 rectangles. Make two piles of them, alternating the colors one on top of the other, then make fringe all the way down the long side, leaving about 1 inch uncut along the middle. The fringe should be about 1 inch wide, but you can make it as small as you want. Roll up each stack as tightly as you can and secure the center with the tape. Then fluff out the fringe and cheer your team on to victory!

    Check out our large assortment of sports-themed art, too. Whatever sport you love, you'll find it at Oopsy Daisy Fine Art for Kids.

    Go, Team, Go!

     

  • Creative School Lunches

    Now that kids are settling into a new school year, let's talk about Creative School Lunches! Now, we don't mean creative as in works of art, necessarily, but if you want to see some amazing works of lunch art check these out.

    Now, what we at Oopsy Daisy mean by Creative School Lunches is something a little new. Something a little different. Something in addition to the predictable tuna sandwich. Start with our Pinterest board of A+ Back-to-School lunches. Here's a highlight of some of our favorites:

    Butterfly Baggies: Lay a slide-lock plastic baggie flat. Gather the middle of it and clip with a clothespin. Fill the "wings" with grapes, pretzels, or other small healthy treats. You can even do two different treats, one in each wing. Zip the bag shut and decorate the clothespin. Bonus: the pin is reusable!

    Pizza Muffins: Divide refrigerated pizza dough into balls large enough to fill cupcake pan openings. Fill each individual pan about 3/4 full. Top refrigerated pizza dough with sauce, cheese, and any pizza toppings your kids love. Bake according to package directions. Yum! Bonus: these freeze well, so you can make some for now, some for later.

    Banana Dog: This one is so, so easy and so, so smart! Peel a banana and put it, hot-dog like, into a bun. Top with strawberry jelly and a smear of peanut butter (or treat your kid and use chocolate-nut butter!). Bonus: your kid will be the talk of the table.

    On Saturdays, celebrate the weekend with our favorite creative lunch tip: a personalized placemat. At Oopsy Daisy, we have hundreds--hundreds!--to choose from. So take a look and find the sports, colors, activities, or animals your kid loves most. Then serve up lunch atop it. Bonus: nothing makes a kids feel more special than personalized art.

    Bon Appetit!

  • Back to School Art

    Back to School Art is cool! Even though summer is fun (and we do mean fun!), there's something super-exciting about Back to School time. The new friends, new teachers, new school supplies, and new clothes that some with a new school year offer every student a fresh start. And new art, just like all those other new things, offers a fresh start to your walls and your world at home.

    We have a lot of Back-to-School art at Oopsy Daisy, from school buses to schools of fish! and don't forget educational art like map art and alphabet art.

    Here's some Back-to-School Art you can make yourself, and it will help you all school-year long! This pencil door hanger will let everyone who walks past your room know that you are hard at work. It's a do-not-disturb sign that's just for hard-working students like you!  And it's simple to make:

    You will need:

    • 4 craft sticks
    • tan construction paper
    • glue
    • ribbon or string (long enough to loop over a doorknob)
    • black marker
    • optional: foam sticker letters or red marker

     

    Loop the string onto the construction paper and glue the craft sticks next to one another on the paper over the tips of it. When everything is dry, cut around the sticks on three sides (avoid the string!) and bring the fourth side to a point like a pencil (as shown in photo). Draw a black tip to look like the pencil point.

    You can paint the sticks yellow if they aren't already, or use a yellow marker. Then use the sticky letters or your red marker to write the words "Doing My Homework" on your new pencil door hanger.

    Now, whenever you are hard at work, let everyone know! And happy school year.

  • Our Growth Charts are Big-Time Cute!

    It's back-to-school time (sorry kids!) and for parents and grandparents, that means lots of head-shaking and comments about how fast the time goes. ("Kindergarten already?")

    For new babies or brand-new kindergarteners, a personalized growth chart is a beautiful gift. Turn those "my how you've grown" comments into art that will be treasured for many years (and inches!) to come.

    We're not ones to toot our own horns, but we want to share with you some customer comments that make us very proud.

    "My favorite gift to give parents is ANYTHING from Oopsy Daisy. Their products are cute and unique and of the very best quality. I've given many personalized Oopsy Daisy growth charts and ornaments as gifts and they're always cherished."
