About the Book
Art doesn't have to be an expensive production of paints, brushes, and other supplies. When it comes to encouraging kids' creativity, the everyday items we have around the house can be just as good as fancy art studio materials. Barron's new Art Painting series shows children just how easy it is to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary with dozens of really unique and totally do-able projects using supplies that can be found in the kitchen, pantry, or linen closet! With a little imagination, simple items like coffee, sponges, bottle caps, aluminum foil, old newspaper, and even cotton swabs can be used to create a masterpiece! Clearly illustrated, step-by-step instructions include material lists, advice for preparing the workspace, and notes for when an adult's help is needed. Endless inspiration for aspiring young artists as well as teachers and parents! In Art Painting on Everyday Items, painting stones, sandpaper, and leaves are just some of the imaginative projects featured. (Ages 5 and up)

My Take on the Book
There are 16 different art activities in this book using water. They begin easy with water and a paint brush on a concrete surface outdoors. There are projects with paint, cornstarch, sand, dish soap for colored bubbles, ink, glue, and so much more in this creative book of projects. If you already have arts and crafts materials around your house, you will most likely have the materials for the projects in this book for the creative activities. . I believe my girls will enjoy using their imagination with the projects that Bernadette Cuxant created.
