When I saw this idea, I knew it was the art project for us. Easy, creative, and used only supplies we already had on hand (namely plain paper and colored pencils). While the original used only circles for the concentric shapes, I let the kids use any shape they wanted.
Seahawk used rectangles:
Munchkin used hearts:
And I used circles and Small Fry’s hand:
If you think it’s easy outlining an 8-month-old’s hands, think again, lol. But it wasn’t the hardest thing in the world, either.
The black outlines is one way we deviated from the original post on this art project, but I found ours were too muddy to tell what they were without them. So if you try this with your kids, feel free to leave them off if you want :).
This looks really nice! And mess-free. My favourite type of art 🙂
Mine too! Hehe. Thanks so much for reading and commenting 🙂
My pleasure 🙂
This looks really nice! And mess-free. My favourite kind of art. 🙂
Awesome! It’s a fun project isn’t it!? And definitely mess free! I love that you used different shapes. Good thinking!
I think I liked it better than the boys, lol. It was fun, though, yes. Thanks for the idea!

Cool looking project. And it’s an easy one to put on the list. I need to do art every week t his year! Seriously, need to do some of the fun stuff. Maybe it will motivate to do the boring normal stuff. 😉
