Running out of ideas for a fun family project? Make it a Fun Found Art Friday. During your walk, collect sticks and when you get home create art using your sticks. Some ideas include making a shape like a heart or spelling out your initials using your stick supply. Your art can be temporary or made permanent by using wood glue and a picture frame. Connect with someone else and share your art with them online.
