Fanciful Sea Life Coloring Book and Stone Painting for Kids
In our house we love to craft. And the more colorful the better is my theory. Whether it be painting on rocks or coloring in an adult coloring book I love bold and bright colors. Maybe I get that from my love of the sunshine and all of the colors of nature it brings out. Either way I'm always on the lookout for ways for my daughter and I help express ourselves and through color.
Not too long ago we received a fun book called the Art of Stone Painting. However some of the ideas inside were a bit above our creativity level. The publishers must have gotten some of that type of feedback from others like us because the followed the title up with a really awesome book called Stone Painting for Kids. Now this is much more for our level of expertise. This book offers step-by-step instructions that are easy for any level of artist to follow. And it gives you lots of full color ideas including using rocks for fun games like tic-tac-toe! It even gave us tips on how to find the perfect rocks for painting. Now just to wait for the rain to stop so we can get out there are start exploring!
We also received a fun coloring book that's filled with all things sea life. I was really excited because that meant at least one lighthouse picture for me to color. I've always had a thing for lighthouses so anytime I find one in a coloring book I have to color it myself.
