I want to apologize that I am a little behind answering some of the great questions I have been asked this week. I will get around to answering them as soon as I can. I love your questions.
I am really looking forward to going to Lakeshore Learning's Little Artist Workshop this Saturday with my boys. They have free crafts every Saturday but this is going to be HUGE. They will have 4 great crafts for the kids. It will be nice to just show up and start creating - no prep work for me is a big plus I could get used to!
There are a few more pictures I wanted to share with you from my Lakeshore Learning shopping trip. I could seriously spend a whole month posting about this store. It is a good thing I am only posting about the art section. Don't forget to use the great 20% coupon that Lakeshore Learning made for my readers. It is awesome and it does not expire until July 3rd.
So this is my third and final post about my Lakeshore Learning shopping trip.....
Check out Lakeshore's paper aisle. It makes me happy. There are so many colors to choose from.
Of course they have tissue paper too!
If you have not discovered all of their stamps you are going to love them. My son Lance got a collection of their stamps for Christmas and he LOVES them.
We have a set of these large stamp pads.
Am I a total nerd that I am posing with an Easel? I think so! I know of many of you that have gone and bought this table-top easel since I went on and on about it this Spring. I saw it in many of the pictures you sent me during the class!
Here are a variety of other easels.
Lakeshore covers all the essential art supplies.... glue, scissors, tape...
And all the fun little accessories you could dream of: feathers, flowers, buttons, sequins, googlie eyes, pipe cleaners, craft sticks, beads, rhinestones.... you get the idea.
Do you love do-a-dots? My kids do.
Here are a few other things I love....
This spin and draw toy is so much fun. It has kept my kids entertained for hours!
I want every single one of these art books! They have a great selection.
I have used this rotating spinner machine in my last 2 art classes to teach about colors, color mixing and shapes. It is always a hit!
I use these rubbing plates to teach about texture in art.
I have used these animal stencils to teach about positive and negative shapes and as an object lesson to go with the book It Looked Like Spilt Milk.
Lakeshore Learning carries every kind of pencil, colored pencil, marker and crayon you could think of. These smelly markers bring me right back to my childhood - love them!
I love that Lakeshore Learning has people colored crayons, colored pencils and paper. They are awesome!
Here is my awesome local store manager Lindsey. I have shopped there so many times and she has always been so helpful. I never actually knew she was the manager - I never thought to ask. She is the best!
This has been so fun for me to post about my favorite store. I hope you can see why I think they are so exceptional!
