Do you know what resist art is?
I didn’t either until a while ago. When I learned about it, I was itching to do an art activity with my grandkids.
I was finally — FINALLY — able to do a Valentine themed one with my granddaughter.
While grandkids of all ages will enjoy this art activity, tweens and teens will especially like it because they can create their own designs with the glue gun. Continue reading
