Over at Letters and Numbers and Books, Oh My! they are doing a meme on Open Ended Art. I've always been a fan of allowing children to create what they want from different materials as well as present them with different craft ideas. That way the get the best of both worlds.
Anyways, the theme for this week is Hans Hoffman. Dd is young so we talked about how Hans Hoffman was an artist who liked to do his art with different shapes. I had her repeat his name and she was able to tell me that the shape we used was a square. She also recognized the colors yellow, green, pink, white, black and orange. She's been showing her picture off to everyone who will use it. :)
