Creative art for children is my specialty (not curriculums in general, sorry). I am the author of twenty books on the subject ... books filled with art projects and art ideas. I would be happy to help think up projects for kids in particular areas of interest. Again, I am an expert in ART, but not really in "Crafts", and though I know how to make art work in a homeschooling environment, I am not a homeschool specialist. I`m happy to help. MaryAnn F.

Children who draw on a regular basis do better in math and reading than children who do not draw. Drawing in this case means simply that... drawing on plain paper.
I like to think that art is a process, not just a final product. So I like to see kids experiment, discover, explore.

If it was a huge downpour, it would wash away to a faded level. If it was just "wet", it would stay longer. Tempera is very much something that dissolves in water. You might look into "BioColors"
Hi, Lynn. Tempera paint will wash away. There is no toxic problem with it, especially if the kind you buy actually says "non toxic" on the label. Enjoy the activity...sounds like a lot of fun! MaryAnn
Thank you for writing. I hope I can answer your questions. Comparing tempera and acrylic paints is like comparing tape and glue...they both stick, but they are completely different. Tempera is cheap
Oh my goodness, I missed giving you your reply. Please forgive me. You are right...summer is different, and i was lost in other things. I think the approach you are taking is wonderful. You are giving
