This is a little saying we have in our house. If someone is having a bad morning and wants to mess with someone else's day we tell them.. go make art not war. By the end of their little time-out to think quietly, they are new again, refreshed and feel good about themselves once more. Most of the time they've made a beautiful sorry note or just forgot why they were mad to begin with and invite the stinker back in to craft with them. ha! oh the witchcraft trickery that goes on in this house ;)
Felt squares stacked, glitter neatly stored, things organized by color family and some (paints).... used too frequently to bother. scissors have a hook.washi tapes have a dowl.stickers have a basket and our glues and gluegun collection have their own as well. Paper is always out, Pencils of all kinds are sharpened, scraps and remains from each project remain on the floor and every surface nearby like confetti and we are ready for the next celebration.
This color wheel poster kit is from papersource, we have a few more maps in the boys room+science bro zone too.

Violets window goes out to the chicken run, every morning she opens the window and sings to her ladies. They come running over to her kissy kiss sounds and hop up to the windowsill as she feeds them flakes of oatmeal and blueberries. She fluffs and straightens out their feathers and dresses each one up in outfits and crowns.
