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!
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: these art badge sets are great for classrooms!
To make your own free printable art badge set you’ll need:
- 1-3 sheets of 8.5 x 11 heavy cardstock
- Our free printable art badge set (download from hello, Wonderful)
- A sheet of inkjet sticker paper
- Art and craft supplies for extra decoration (crayons, cardboard, feathers, ribbon, etc)
How adorable are these? The bold bright colors are so appealing, but for those of you who would prefer to save some ink, or let your artists pick their own palette, the free printable includes a set of black and white art badges too!
