Crafting with Kids and with Children's Artwork -- A Little Birdie Told Me... No. 24



"It doesn't make much difference how the paint is put on as long as something has been said.  Technique is just a means of arriving at a statement."-- Jackson Pollock

Welcome to 
"A Little Birdie Told Me..." Tuesday!
If you're here to share a craft, recipe or project post,
you'll find the linky and the specifics on how to 
join the party after the features below.

------------------------------------------------

Last weeks link-ups were AWESOME!
It was, by far, the best collection of
creative projects and recipes yet!
(Which made it so, so hard to choose the features.)

Luckily, there was a recurring theme running
through several of the posts:

Arts & Crafts for Children
--AND--
Crafts to do with Art made by Children

------------------------------------------------

Arts & Crafts for Children

shared her passion for Abstract Expressionist painter
Jackson Pollock and a wonderful hands-on
way to bring Pollock's style to life with your kids.

shared the perfect activity-craft to
keep young imaginations and hands busy
at any party.

------------------------------------------------

Crafts to do with Art made by children:

Made a very meaningful necklace out of beads
fashioned from her daughters' paintings.

Has an ingenious idea for preserving
some of your child's abstract works of art.

If you've been featured 
(this week, or in a previous week)
feel free to grab a "featured on" button
from the sidebar.
------------------------------------------------

Now it's time to link-up and share your creativity!
Just 4 SIMPLE GUIDELINES

1)  JUST BECAUSE YOU'RE NICE -- COMMENT AND FOLLOW

2)  LINK-UP -- Link-up the URL of a specific post -- craft, recipe, DIY project, or anything else you'd like to show-off.  This is not  a place to advertise merchandise you are selling.  If you're interested in promoting your business with Rook No. 17, please visit the "Advertising" section.

3)  POST THE BUTTON OR A LINK-- Grab the code for the button (below) and paste it into your sidebar or the body of your post.

4)  VISIT the 2 LINKS AFTER YOURS --  Linky parties only work if we all do our part to support and encourage one another.


-With the new LinkyTools format, your link will appear first, rather than last-

Photobucket


HOW TO:
1) click your cursor in the code box, 
2) right-mouse click and "Select All", 
3) right-mouse click and select Copy. 
4) Paste the code into your sidebar or post.

REMEMBER TO
VISIT the 2 LINKS AFTER YOURS

  8. Jenn! The mr. linky thing is working... I've tried about 10 times and multiple browsers. It might just be a glitch in the system. I'll come back in a few hours.

  18. Oops, I am late to the party, but thank you so much for hosting Jenn! I Love your party so much (and your blog for that matter).

    Oh just a heads up, at least for me the links were not working for your featured posts. It looks like they are pointing towards a draft or something named liked that. You might want to double check?

    Have a great day :D
