One of my oldest daughter Eleanor's favorite things to do first thing in the morning (when we don't have to be anywhere) is to take out her watercolors and paint. I love waking up and finding her so intent in her creativity. I had art class for first period one year during high school, and that was the absolute best way to start my day.
We go through paper pretty quickly at our house, so I decided to make some recycled mini art books to have on hand when the creative bug hits. Visit me over at PBS Parents to find the full how-to and make your own stash!
