The Children's Art Group: Apple Printing

Apple Printing
After constantly wishing there was an alternative to the expensive art classes and camps, I decided to start a local Children's Art Group. With 30 members, some awesome little artists, and enthusiastic parents, we are having a BLAST focusing on process art and projects.

For our 4th meetup, I hosted an Apple Printing Playdate. The kids made apple prints with apples, washable paint, and paper. When the kids were done and off playing, the adults made apple print shirts with fabric paints!

For an added element of play, I made an Apple Picking Sensory Bin, VERY much inspired by the one I saw HERE at Pink and Green Mama.

I was really blown away at how creative the adults were with their apple print shirts!

I love to see art drying all over the counters!

I loved this meetup!
 I thought it was fun to get the parents involved in the art activity too!

  3. Teachers shape so much of their pupils' future. Who knows, maybe one of them will turn out to be the next genius in the printing services industry!
