It’s hard to believe, but our beautifully breezy mid-summer days are slowly giving way to the heat and humidity Midwestern Augusts are known for. The air is sticky, buzzing bugs & whirring air conditioners create a constant low hum, and the word “bored” has made a stunningly aggressive return to the conversation. If you are *also* tired of giving play suggestions and getting epic eyerolls (seriously, it isn’t just me, right?) don’t worry, we’ve got you covered…
We created these super fun printable art badges for hello, Wonderful and they’re guaranteed to keep your littles busy for hours/days/weeks/until school starts! Each badge represents a different type of art medium or process, providing endless afternoons of experimentation, learning & fun! Bonus: these little badges can be decorated and colored as their own mini-projects!
(Looking for art projects to go with our badges? Visit our list of 50+ art medium exploration ideas grouped by category!)
The printable contains full-color and black & white versions of the badges (for young DIY’ers) along with a “collectors sheet”. We made ours into stickers for a little art challenge – gotta get ’em all! 😉 There are tons of suggestions for use over on the blog post…and PS -teachers: they’re great for classrooms!
You can download the printable art badges HERE – and be sure to let us know how you’ve used them by tagging us with #barleyandbirch in your shares or leaving your idea in the comments below!
