The Living Studio Friday Prompt! {brand new and sooo fun}

We have so many fun and amazing things planned for the Living Studio but one thing we wanted to start ASAP was a weekly Friday prompt.

The children had been begging to do art together for a while and I could no longer ignore their pleas:-) We chose to spend our day creating with paper clay. We all had so …
