2 SIMPLE VALENTINE KIDS CRAFT 

When everyone is busy expressing their love to their life partners. I tend to spend this day and time with the people I love the most,my family. This Day for me is mostly about expressing love and gifting each member of my family a special gift.Whether it’s just by flowers,chocolates or special hand made cards/crafts made at home.I am teaching Princess Z the same concept to give out and express her love to the people who means to her the most,and the way we do that is by making home made cards/ related DIYs for everyone around.

I think there is no other better way of receiving and sending out special home made special Valentine DIY crafts by the little ones on this special day.(It’s always great to add their special touch).
So as Valentine’s Day is approaching soon thought of sharing 2 simplest and LOVE-ly crafts that we made at home together to mark the special day.

KADINSKY CIRCLES 

This week me and Princess Z chose an activity that’s all about colors and different big and small circles.

Before I go on,let me go a bit into the history and introduce you to the artist who was behind it all.

Wassily Kadinsky, was a Russian born French Expressionist.His worked looked more like the images below but one of his most recognizable pieces of artwork is his color study known as Squares with Concentric Circles/Rings (Farbstudie Quadrate) (Below Last).This is where the activity is differed from.

This activity helps increase physical-development from gross and motor skills to free-writing skills.as well as encourages kids to do large pieces of work with large movements without making a mess around.

The best thing about this activity is that it’s not at all messy and can be done anywhere either at school/home.In the end its all about having fun and spending time together.

P.S-This is one of Princess Z’s favourite activity.
