#write31days ~ Day 6: Artful Tot







artful-tot-october 7

The Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento does a monthly program called Artful Tot which the girls are huge fans of {as is mama since she doesn’t have to clean up the majority of the mess!}. We attended this morning where they had a wonderful selection of activities, including vegetable and fruit painting, making tracks with farm animals, and water painting. The latter was done on a Buddha boardย {also made in a mini version}. I’dย never seen these before but they’re amazing. Definitely going to consider for Christmas gifting!

Gave these a little extra contrast in post-processing to emphasize all the beautiful colors happening in these pictures! ๐Ÿ™‚

9 Thoughts on “#write31days ~ Day 6: Artful Tot

  1. I was getting ready to say, “oh you;re the fun mom my kids wish they could have!” Thankfully I have older girls who don;t mind messy artful toddlers, lol!

    • I don’t mind when it isn’t in my house! We usually do our messy stuff outside and I use that wonderful instrument called a hose to clean things off. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. Those expressions – those faces – you will be so glad you captured them later on! How precious…

    The expressions on your girls’ faces is priceless! What a great program.

  4. This is so cool! I wish I wasn’t such a baby about letting my kids use paint. I know they’d love it and who cares if they get messy?!?! I need to be free and just let them have some fun with art. I’ll see if they have a program like this in Boise.

    • It’s hard if you don’t have a great place to do it in your home. We have mostly carpet which makes it really difficult to do paints and such. On warm days, I’ll take the girls outside and do it on the patio so I can hose it and them off after they get dirty. But studios are really wonderful for messy art — it’s what they are intended for! ๐Ÿ™‚
