How does it work?
The first month you will receive a box of supplies to be used throughout the year. During that month, while waiting for your first envelope, you are encouraged to explore your art supplies with your Little Scribbler with some “free art” time. Each month after that, you will receive an envelope with instructions for four crafts and any papers, stickers, yarn, or other flat items that you might need for the month.
Little Scribblers Art Club Craft Categories
These art experiences are really intended for developing and practicing scribbling. Little Scribblers will begin holding crayons with their whole fist and will eventually develop more of a pencil grasp called the tripod grip. This develops pre-writing skills they will need a few years from now. They will also experiment with pressure and observe cause and effect while they are scribbling. As they develop over the year, Little Scribblers may be scribbling more deliberately and can follow directions, make vertical and horizontal lines, and even begin circular scribbles.
This art becomes the base for other projects and offers another chance for Little Scribblers to experiment with different mediums and techniques, sometimes without an end product in mind. This art can be used as wrapping paper, card decorations, origami paper, scrapbooking backgrounds, etc. We include suggestions to help you upcycle every bit of scribbling and stamping your Little Scribbler produces!
These crafts are meant to have a more finished look that will adorably decorate a window, wall, or refrigerator. They are more guided than our other projects and make great gifts to other important people in your Little Scribbler’s life.
These projects generally have some kind of scribbled or fingerpainted background along with stickers or artwork in the foreground to create a thematic scene. (See our blog post with examples!)
These projects are intended to be used as a toy when they are finished and require more adult assistance than other categories.
