I haven’t done a post about some of Caroline’s creative projects in four years. Four! The last one was Caroline’s Creative Endeavors from July 2018.
Like many creative kids, Caroline goes through phases with different types of creativity. For her, these things are hobbies and not something she wants to make into a career. She doesn’t like being under pressure to create with a deadline. So she’ll have weeks where she spends a lot of her free time creating and then other weeks when she doesn’t do much. (If you’ve read my post Understanding Why Your Creative Child Is Lazy, you understand what I’m talking about.)
I asked Caroline if she wanted me to share some of her favorite things she’s been doing and she gave me several. I hope you enjoy them!
Painting With Posca Pens
Caroline enjoys using Posca Pens.
Here are some canvas bags she worked on recently.
Drawing With Watercolor Dual Tip Markers
This is a gift she wrapped for a friend with plain white paper (doubled layered) and then decorated. It was so cute in person!
Digital Art With Apple Procreate
Caroline drew this on her iPad with her Apple Pencil. She said this is similar to her Among Us avatar.
Beaded Necklaces and Bracelets
Caroline loves making these while watching videos. LOL! She’s made lots for friends and family members according to their individual interests. This is just a small sampling.
She usually buys her pony beads at Joann’s and Michaels. She especially likes Joann’s because you can buy the individual colors or a big variety bag. She uses primarily black stretchy elastic that she gets at Meijer for the base. Here are pony beads on Amazon that are similar.
The six across the top all coordinate and they are really pretty in person. The clear beads actually have glitter/sparkle in them.
And more! She said the top right corner one is her favorite.
And more! The bottom one is one of my favorites.
So that’s a little update from the creative child in my home. I hope you enjoyed it!
