|1. Editorial: Mixing colours
You're in for a treat this week. The crafts in this 'colour' issue of kids craft weekly are among my favourite projects ever and, judging by my daughter's response, they're a hit with kids too!
Many of these crafts will give your little one a chance to have a go at mixing colours.
If, like me, you're always forgetting which primary colours make what secondary colour, here's a quick rundown. If you have a couple of kids under your charge here's a fun group activity that teaches young kids about mixing colours.
Mixing colours can be a messy affair so I think it's wise to warn you
that food colouring (which is used extensively in these crafts) will
stain fingers and clothes and pretty much everything it comes into
Before you get started I suggest that you lay down down newspaper, put
your little one in an old t-shirt or painting smock and have an old
cloth on hand for emergency spills.
Before I sign off I'd like to say thanks to those who have sent in
photos for the upcoming photo gallery. I still need more photos before
the gallery can go ahead so please, if you have photos of your
little ones with creations that were inspired by kids craft weekly I'd really appreciate it if you could send them to me by email.
Happy crafting and see you next week!

"Boston Mamas is written, developed, and designed by Christine Koh.
Christine has spent the last decade as an academic... although all
along the way, her family and friends have urged her to make better use
of her artistic inclinations. Christine’s priorities shifted when
she became a mama in 2004; around that time she also realized that
truly, she was an artist mama at heart."
