BIG Spring Mural Project, Inspired by Eric Carle’s artwork, and his Book “Draw Me A Star”

Fun Mother’s Day Spring Art Project for Kids and Families

For this project, we’re going to work on a different art project each week and add each one to a large piece of paper or posterboard to make one giant, colorful mural.  It will look wonderful hanging in you child’s room!

What You’ll Need:

  • Paints (tempra or acrylic AND watercolor, oils are optional)
  • Assorted colors of tissue paper that you’d use in gift bags.
  • Decent quality watercolor paper
  • Assorted patterns and spring like colors of scrapbooking projects
  • Crayons or oil pastels
  • Markers
  • An old tooth brush, assorted paint brushes and scissors
  • A LARGE PIECE OF WHITE POSTERBOARD or FOAM CORE BOARD
You won’t need all of these at once, but we’ll use one type of medium for each separate art pieces.  
The first step of this art project will be up Monday, May 30th, and we’ll do a project at least 3 times a week until Mother’s Day.  

This would make a wonderful Mother’s Day Gift!  

It would also be great to do with several siblings contributing to ONE mural!!

Paris used this concept a little with her first Lonely Monkey Illustration!

    Super duper idea Byn (and Paris is so very talented ~ but then again, how can that even be a surprise since she is your daughter!).
