Spice Art

Joshua LOVES art, and saying this is an understatement! He also has a new found love of using glue. However, just to clarify, glue does NOT come in a stick (glue stick)-that's not called glue according to the 3 year old in my house. Glue must be white and sticky and lots of fun!! (unlike the purple glue stick that works just as well most of the time!!)

Anyways, I got today's art project from a blog I follow called House of Baby Piranha and Joshua absolutely loved it! Here is our breakdown:

You will need
Old Spices - we used salt, course black pepper, poppy seeds, minced onions, dried basil, pumpkin pie spice, minced garlic, and thyme (I think that's all of them)
To Make
1 .Drizzle or paint glue onto the paper

2 .Sprinkle the spices onto the glue

3 .Try rubbing the spices into the glue for a different effect

4 .Let them keep creating as long as they like - Joshua was hungry and wanted to be done after just one creation.


  1. Too cute! You are such an awesome Mom! Looking at this, I see no problem with you home schooling and doing day care. :)

  2. I second that notion.
