One of the great things about homeschooling is that the kids have a lot more time for arts and crafts.
Lately, Marcus has been having fun with chalk pastels.
These were my favorites! He made them as Valentine cards for two of his friends, Zach and Darcie.
There is a fantastic site called Hodgepodge that features free chalk pastel art tutorials. You should check it out! All you need for chalk pastel art is paper and a starter box of chalk pastels which you can purchase at a hobby store like Michael's. (We bought ours at Target in the dollar bins. I think it was $5 and came with 48 pastels.)
