I have mentioned briefly before how Zentangle has been a wonderful addition to our homeschool morning basket. Since beginning to add this to our read aloud time, Beth has taken quite a liking to it and continues to do it in her own spare time.
I thought I would share some of her creations – she is becoming quite an artist (and she definitely does NOT take after her mother 😉
Her ‘Zentangle’ bag is ready to go whenever she knows that she will be sitting around at appointments for a while. In it she has her Zentangle books, her notebook which she draws in, a fine line marker, a pencil and her kneadable eraser.
For those who want to know how it works here is a brief description:
- Draw what is called a ‘string’. This is a few lines across your page, this will make little segments for you to draw patterns in.
2. Choose a section to begin patterning in. Beth got her ideas from her Zentangle books but you can make up your own. Some examples are here.
3. Keep going until you have filled all of your sections.
I hope you now are inspired to go and do some Zentangling of your own!
