Last week, my daughter and I had a ton of fun making straw blown peacocks. The response was overwhelming and I received a few requests for additional ideas. We are always up for a challenge and were excited to play with this technique some more. So, here are a few more blow paint creatures with a couple of free printables. Also check out our video on Facebook.
Your kids will love this fun Father’s Day card, complete with a movable hammer.
My daughter loves her mommy, but she is a daddy’s little girl through and through. Father’s Day is only a few weeks away and we were eager to start making special projects for dad. This Father’s Day card has a movable pounding hammer that the kids will get a big kick out of and that their daddies will love.
My daughter and I love to paint. We have been painting together since she was barely a year old.
Nothing quite says fall like all things pumpkin. Everywhere you look, the world is decorated or flavored with pumpkin & I for one love it.
Every Wednesday I take my daughter to the library. Our local library offers wonderful story times, yoga for kids and Lego workshops.
A funny thing happened at dinner out with my family last night. My daughter ordered a milk, which they served to her in a to-go cup. When she finished her milk, she asked me to take it home for her. “Mama, I can make a craft out of it.” This made my night. I did bring home the cup. We rinsed it out & set it aside to dry for another day.
We did not make our cup craft last night, but we did use our take-out container for a simple & fun art project.
Styrofoam printing is fun for kids & adults. We used a take-out container, but a Styrofoam plate would be perfect for this as well. Use a blunt tipped pencil and press into the Styrofoam to create a design. Press hard enough to create a good indent in your foam, but not too hard that it busts through. Once you have created your design, paint over your Styrofoam in a thin layer of paint & press onto a piece of paper. Press firmly all the way around & lift to reveal your print. It is that easy.
I was excited we were able to put our container to good use, now I can’t wait to see what kind of creation my daughter makes out of her cup. Stay tuned.
