fun with art

March 30th is the birthday of the ear-ily talented (HA!) artist Vincent Van Gogh.  Celebrate his birthday by looking at his famous sunflower paintings, and then make your own sunflower craft.  All you need to make your own sunflower is some yellow and orange paint, some paint brushes, and a few paper plates.  Encourage your child to mix the two colors together, as well as use them separately to make a  sunflower on the paper plate canvas.   Beautiful!  You could even plant a garden of your own sunflowers! (from seeds of knowledge.com)

Be sure to send me a picture of your sunflowers (both painted and garden-style), too!
