Getting crafty...


Pin It
With the help of Kelley, I just did a little rearranging in Sloane's room with the wall hangings. I wanted to make a photo wall in our living room but Mark isn't a fan so I had to move my idea to her bedroom. ;) We needed 1 extra piece of artwork so this was the perfect time to let her have her first painting experience. It was so cute! She loved it...
I always have an extra canvas laying around. I have a few paints I have used in her room before so the colors all matched. I cut a big "S" out of paper and used double-stick tape to adhere it to the canvas.
I feel like I have a good mix of "OCD elem. teacher" in me. I feel that's kind of an oxymoron since it requires some "letting the child work" but not wanting to allow a mess or for her to mess it up. LOL!

This was a good project since it would be REALLY hard to mess up. It has the messy finger painting look but that was the goal. I did end up using a white out pen to touch up a few spots where the paint got under the letter.  She started out using the brush and loving it...what was I thinking?!?!!? She soon went to fingers then hands. ;)
 
We headed straight for the bath after we finished...
 
The finished product (thanks Pinterest):

 
 
And just for fun, a little picture of Buddy during his 1st painting project:
