At the end of every school year I try to help our kids avoid the infamous summer slide by spending a little time each day working on math, reading, and writing. But I also recognize that they’ve worked so hard all year and I aim to make it at least a little more playful, and OOLY has the perfect colorful school supplies to do just that! We do a variety of activities, but I always find workbooks to be a good supplement to the other games and projects we have planned for the summer.
Hi there, I’m Marcy, from Project Artwork at Home. The project I want to share with you today takes its inspiration from The Paper Works Sketchbook to create a DIY boho wall hanging. Ordinarily, I use my sketchbooks at home for…well, sketching! But this sketchbook is unique in that it contains four different types of paper: white, black, graph, AND kraft. Every page is perforated, so I pulled out one of each and had fun creating a project that utilizes them all. The best part of this project is adding color, pattern, and texture to each of these high-quality papers.
OOLY’s Lil’ Poster Paint Pods offer a fantastic palette of colors fit for a cosmic space theme! I loved the neon colors in this set, they’ve made it possible to create fantastical, “galactical” planets as a great paper mache project. These brightly colored planets would make great props for a school project, a space themed birthday party or just to hang in a child’s bedroom! And the perfect accompaniment to the D.I.Y Alien and Spacecraft from my previous blog.
Do you ever wish you can take a ride in a far-out spaceship through a galaxy filled with magnificent stars and colorful Milky Ways? Go on a space adventure with this alien and his little spacecraft. The alien tube craft printable fits nicely into his toilet tube vehicle made with some of OOLY’s fantastic art supplies such as their Lil’ Poster Paint Pods and Chalk-O-Rama chalk crayons.
I LOVE art supplies. I can’t get enough of them. As you can see from my Instagram page, the only thing I love more than art supplies is rainbows. When it comes to taking my art supplies on the go, it’s important for me to have a carrying case that’s not too big or too small, but something just right. Something Goldilocks would approve of. I really didn’t think such a case existed until I saw the OOLY Mighty Pouch. I can’t believe how much I can fit into this expandable case. I’m often taking supplies on the go for both myself and my 6-year-old so this pouch works great for both of us. You can even fit a mini iPad inside! While I love the bright colors that the Mighty Pouch comes in, I thought it would be fun to create a personalized pencil pouch and make it more my own. Below are a few ways to personalize your own Mighty Pouch!
