Here’s an activity for you to do with your child that utilizes things you have around the house to create art together. We can use art to teach larger concepts, and in this lesson, we are learning the value of slow-and-steady precision, the skill of thinking outside the box, and the joy of a finished product!
This activity will teach your kiddos (and you!) to make a simple origami bird, and if they really get into it, they can turn it into a DIY mobile. The lesson teaches about the art of Alexander Calder, who reimagined what we think of when we think of sculpture. Our communities are going to require a lot of reimagining in the months ahead! Let’s practice together and use this time to talk about inventive uses for things. Practicing innovation is a great exercise for us all!
