Olympic art, to eat and to display

My favorite arts and crafts projects are the kind you can eat! We created Olympix flag cookies, adapted from a suggested activity in the Amanda Bennett Winter Olympics unit study.

Please don't judge our artistic abilities! ;) I never try to impress anyone on Pinterest with our art; we simply use art for fun and learning.

Today we started
chalk pastels, using the fabulous guide from Southern Hodgepodge. For someone like me who doesn't have many art skills, this inexpensive e-book sure is a big help!

This is an affiliate link; I purchased the guide for myself and this you'll enjoy it, too!


  1. Neat ideas! Where did you get your pastels from? My girls would love to do some projects with those!

    1. Thanks for stopping by! I used these inexpensive pastels from Amazon (under $10 for 50 small pastels) and the lesson plans were from Southern Hodgepodge.
