I ran across this post on a blog I read. I think it is a great reminder of the power of creating with your kids. As a mom, I know that breaking out the paints, glitter, glue, and craft supplies is an anxiety attack waiting to happen. Sometimes, I just have to let go of my expectations for a clean house and just have fun with my kids. I don't consider myself the most artistic person, but my kids love it when we work on an art project together.
Today, in kindergarten, we created a few valentine cards. Yep, it's a mess, but there is joy in creating!
