It's coming down to the last week of summer and of course the boys are bored out of their minds at this point. It takes a lot of my thought power to come up with creative things to do. Today we decided to make a little curbside art. I sent them off to collect little nature bits from around our house and then we set up little works of art on the curbs around our street. It kept the boys busy for awhile collecting and it was fun to see what they thought was interesting enough to add to our art. The residual cool part was that our neighbors would see our little installations as they came home from work and hopefully enjoy them too!
So, I challenge you to so the same thing this weekend. Collect little bits from the immediate area around where you live. Arrange them into some kind of art display on a curb or someplace where your neighbors might find it. Of course, take a photo or two. Post a link to your photo in the comments. I will post them here. I think it will be fun to see the different types of things people find from place to place.
While we were arranging, I happened to look up and see this heart shaped knot in the tree that I've never noticed before. I like to think that the tree was enjoying our art too!
Updated: I thought I'd help you out by showing you some curbside art we did back in July. I really love how the black pavement in the first shot adds texture and interest.
