Group Art!

A wide open canvas can be intimidating for some, but with a little help from friends group art can be a super fun process. This photo was taken before Little Miss' birthday party. We supplied the tools and they went to town! Working together with other children is not only fun, but it promotes socialization, team work, cooperative play, and much more! Children see a finished project and learn that their seemingly small contribution matters to the bigger picture.

What's more...Group Art can happen in small or large groups, with 2 or 20 children!

  1. I like that you used the whole table and added things like stamps and markers for everyone to use. For my daughter's first birthday party, we covered a card table with paper and put out some crayons so the kids could go to town!
