Re-create a Masterpiece: Monet Water Lily Craft for Kids
Big Brother was away at camp all last week and it felt oh so strange to only have three children to tend too! Having three littles had its own challenges, but man-- three children was a breeze! We filled our days with a lot of time at the park, having picnic lunches, and doing a few crafts.
One craft project I did with my 3 and 5 year old was to re-create a piece of art by famous artist, Claude Monet. I put my littles to work ripping paper and creating their own water lily masterpiece.
One (of the many) aspect of homeschooling that I love is that I get to learn alongside my kiddos. Sometimes I am learning things for the first time as they are-- and for those things I may already know, it just deepens my appreciation and understanding. Art is one of those things.
Claude Monet was a famous Impressionist artist; he loved painting the effects that light had on an object. Big Brother read, "Who Was Claude Monet" not too long ago, and his life story was quite fascinating! One of the most well-known pieces by Claude Monet was his Water Lilies Painting.

Water Lily Craft for Kids
Once your child is happy with their water scene, have your child rip a piece of green construction paper into a circle as best he/she can. Glue it on the water scene-- this will be a water lily.
