Inte visste jag att det jag höll på med när jag pratade i telefon eller när jag satt och lyssnade på föreläsningar hade ett namn - Zentangle. Det som är så häftigt med Zentangle är att det går att göra väldigt enkelt och det går att utveckla i oändlighet. Dessutom är det väldigt avstressande, nästan meditativt (därav namnet ZEN-tangle) De som "skapade" Zentangle. I grunden handlar det dessutom om mönster, något som jag som mattelärare också älskar. Hur börjar man då? 1. 2. 3. 4. Det bästa är att det inte finns några rätt eller fel. Här är några förslag på hur man kan arbeta med Zentangle i barngrupp: I en barngrupp/skolklass hade jag börjat med att prata om mönster. Sedan kan man samla mönster på t ex tavlan- dela upp tavlan och låt barnen få fylla var sin bit med ett mönster - det behöver inte vara komplicerade saker - randigt, prickigt, hjärtan, rutigt, stjärnor... Låt barnen få göra sin egen zentangle - utgå från en form; ett hjärta, en stjärna, en kvadrat, en bokstav. Related:  Arte

art journaling as a creative process Magnetic Ironing Mat DIY I don't think I'm alone in saying that ironing is not one of my favorite tasks. I try to use a steamer on everything I can or just spritz things with water to ease wrinkles, but sometimes you just can't get around bringing out the ol' iron for a job. I think part of not wanting to iron is the fact that a full size ironing board usually takes up all of the space in a laundry room (if you even have a separate room for laundry). So you have to cart everything a few rooms away to really have enough space to do the job. If you've had that problem, you may have your eye on one of those fold up ironing mats that you put on top of your washer/dryer so you can iron smaller items without having to get out the ironing board. The mats usually have magnets on them and some sort of non-slip bottom layer so it will stay put while you iron, and you can fold it up for easy storage when you're done. NOTE: These dimensions will make a finished mat that is 38" x 17".
