Making art fun is Marion Deuchars’ calling. Her range of Let’s make Great Art books inspire creativity, design and art for people of all ages. Making place mat art is just what it sounds like – fun activities that can be made at the dinner table.
Now you have an answer to that eternal question: “Mom, what can I do?” “Make something and sell it!” is the answer. I don’t know about your kids, but mine absolutely love the idea of making things that they can sell and it’s always lovely to support their initiatives. Kids’ Market Day is jam-packed with wonderful creative ideas of crafts, yummy treats and decorative objects your children can make, with varying scales of difficulty.
I was immediately attracted by the image of paper dolls, which I used to love cutting out as a child. I still make them with my younger kids and they love colouring in their clothes and giving them accessories. In the book a mom and daughter make a string of paper dolls together, which go off on a fantastical adventure as they travel through the house and out into the garden.
