Fun art project with the kids! Easy abstract painting that anyone can do! Just blob the paint on the canvas in random spots and blend! (would be interesting how students could make different pictures w/ the same colors and same blob positions)
I could spend a day in that laundry room! The Gabrielle rail-and-peg system from Pottery Barn includes shelves, a hanging canvas hamper and a drying rack that can be configured to suit various spaces and organizing needs.
