While we are closed for COVID-19, we'll continue to share educational resources and fun art projects for families to do at home here!


 Nature Crayon Rubbing Bubble Art
1. Find leaves and other natural things out side. 
2. Place leaves under your paper.
3. Rub a peeled crayon on its side against the paper to reveal the patterns in your leaf!
1. Mix dish soap and food coloring in a shallow tray. Stir.
2. Gently blow bubbles into the tray. Don't let them get too high!
3. Press paper onto the bubbles. Repeat with different colors to create fun abstract patterns.
