This week's Item of the Week (IOW) is none other than... FROOT LOOPS!
Earth Day is a worldwide annual event celebrated on April 22nd. A few years ago, we decided to honor this day by make rainbow art using only Froot Loops cereals, white paper, white school glue, cotton balls, and kid power.. Easy peasy lemon squeezy! Here's how we created this beautiful masterpiece, or as we call it, "MasterTreat!" (see more on MasterTreats here).
This week's Item of the Week (IOW) is the infamous ice tray!
If you’re like us and have been holding on to one of the oldest refrigerators in creation… you know, the one with the freezer up top (with an out-of-order ice maker for years), that’s way off-white by now, and the two-handle top-bottom entry style, then you probably have or had several ice trays in rotation. You’ll also appreciate and maybe even get a kick out of all the many ways we’ve converted those old ice trays into highly efficient, skillfully productive activities for both educational and art activities. So before you finally give the old ice trays (or the old refrigerator, too) a swift kick to the recycle bin, try using a few of them for some ideas we’ve shared below.

Each week, ArtEase! features an item, object, or product that you already have on-hand, or is accessibly affordable. We highlight assorted ways of utilizing otherwise simple or unassuming household or school-related items, and provide ways to incorporate each item into an art project or an academic lesson.
