JUNE 5 - Drawing Day, Pencil Day, National Trails Day, Richard Scarry's Birthday
Using a pencil to create a piece of art is a wonderful way for kids to express themselves. And the process of observation, or free form expression is as important as the results. In fact, studies show that people that doodle while taking notes, retain 29% more information than non-doodlers. Here is a fun Drawing lesson for kids at home. The step by step instructions show how to make cartoon characters using numbers and the letters of the alphabet!
Go take a hike! There is so much to see along a beautiful hiking trail. Plants and rivers, animals, waterfalls - and a great sense of adventure. Trails.com offers a wonderful resource for finding kid-friendly hiking trails near you. Check it out! trails.com
