We paint with a variety of 'paintbrushes' all year long.  Our art unit has the children's creative juices really flowing.  Along with a variety of  'paintbrushes', we use a variety of paper.  An old atlas makes a great canvas!  Check with your local insurance agent...some agents give these free to clients.

What to do with all this wonderful art?  With a scanner and your favorite photo 'shop', you can create a wide assortment of keepsakes for yourself, your child, grandma, your daycare provider, a favorite aunt or friend!
Art can be placed on an actual canvas, a mouse pad, coffee mugs, note cards and stationary, magnets, shopping totes, puzzles, blankets and coasters. 

Use your child's art as a screensaver or wallpaper for your computer or phone.  Iron on transfers are found at most super centers or office supply stores.

Your child creates art so have fun with it!
