There is a trend in my area (and maybe yours) that I hope lasts for a long time. It is painting rocks, hiding them, and then hunting for new ones. We call them “Kindness Rocks” here.

When the weather outside is frightful

Winter inspired art projects

Do you find yourself skipping art altogether because of a failed art curriculum in the past? Is it easy to trudge through your math and language arts books and somehow get through it by the end of the year. Then you leave your art plans by the wayside?
