At the end of the week, when things are winding down, we like to have Freestyle Fridays.  This is the day where I step back and let the kids take the reins!  I let them pick any art materials they want and let them do anything they want with them.  

They get such a thrill out of this…they love having complete control of their creative process without anyone telling them “how” to do it.

Today they selected paper, play-doh, markers, crayons, and sparkle letters.  An eclectic combination indeed!

Using both things together on one sheet and mixing the play-doh colors together…

Playing with textures, a bit of drawing and sculpture on one project…

It usually makes a huge mess, but I think it’s good for them to have some unstructured art making…they had a blast!  I wonder what they’ll pick next week?
