Sew Crafty Friday

Fridge Art Gallery

My refrigerator is adorned with this week’s art projects.

This week the kids learned about Giotto di Bondone in art.  They made egg paint and had great fun using it. 

You need:

Colored chalk

Disposable bowl, cup or line a muffin tin with liners

An egg

2 tsp water

Small rounded rock


Break chalk into small pieces, then grind into powder using rock.

Separate egg.  Add water to egg yolk and beat until frothy. 

Add egg mixture to powered chalk and mix until the consistency of water colored paint.

Paint as you would with any other medium.

When your paintings dry they are a bit gritty and shiny.


Here are the kids’ creations.







I’ve also written December’s Journal Prompts.  Even though some of us won’t be in school everyday, my kids like journal writing so there is something for everyday.

Here are the December Journal Prompts.

I have been busy this week working on some changes I want to make to my blog for the upcoming holidays.  I will be putting some things on my side bar that will change everyday until Christmas.  I hope to have everything up and running by tomorrow sometime.  Please stop by and check it out.

    We are studying this this week too! Thanks for the recipe. I was going to look it up in my free time…apart from 3 med appts in 2 days and now I'm gardening with the kids! I had to take a short break! I am hoping to get to art, probably next week now!

    Very neat. I will have to try this. I think my dc will really like both the making of the paint and the finished product.

    Be blessed,
