We did a fun craft over the weekend that we did once before back at Easter time. I have seen several resist painting posts on Pinterest and it reminded me how much Cheyenne enjoyed it. She could paint the whole page, yet when we take the tape off, there is a cool picture or pattern left behind! I was so excited to set this up and let her do it that I didn’t get any pics of the actual process. 😦
I started out making a snowflake with blue painter’s tape cut in half (because I didn’t have any masking tape). Then I mixed up some different shades of blue paint for Cheyenne to paint different parts of the paper or use the darker colors for effect, but they all ended up getting pretty much mixed together and there isn’t much color difference. Once the paint dried, I took the tape off, with Cheyenne watching eagerly, and revealed the beautiful snowflake. Cheyenne thought it was so cool. I am going to laminate these and start an art notebook, since I have a huge stack of artwork from home and Mother’s Day Out just sitting around. I am going to select some of the favorites and take pictures of some of the larger ones and laminate and create an art portfolio. I will post more on that later, once I get it going. 🙂
Here is the finished snowflake!! We will be doing more of these because Cheyenne loves to paint and loves to see the picture/design once the tape is taken off and is now old enough to think it’s neat and want to do more!
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend with your little ones as well and got to have some fun!
