Fingerprint tree

20140319-201546.jpg

We did a fingerprint tree today for my parents. Grandparents love homemade gifts and they’re fun to make!

We ended up doing a second one so that I could hang one up at home!

I love this idea and they’re fun to do.

We got the free tree template here

The instructions and supplies list can be found here
I can see my toddlers loving these on the windows. I can already picture my one year old constantly pointing to the window admiring their artwork ! I might be crazy. 🙂

This craft is fun because when do they ever use qtips? Kids love anything that’s new and fun. This is also good for motor skills.

Who doesn’t like to get a little messy? Isn’t that part of the fun in art?

Another easter craft we will do is a canvas. I will tape off a cross and let them paint the canvas as they like and once it’s dry I’ll take the tape off to reveal the outline of a cross.

These are all pretty cheap crafts that the kids will really enjoy!

Thanks for reading!

Spring crafts

We made these crafts using tissue paper.

One is a sheep and the other is a sky with flowers.

The sheep I drew a picture and then my three year old dipped the tissue in glue and placed them on the paper.

For the flowers I glued one color to green and then he glued them on the paper add white for clouds, yellow for the sun and blue for the sky.

Big brother nursery gift

We had these three boxes to hang on the wall in our guest room and ended up taking them out and putting them on a shelf in the garage to collect dust.

Now that we are getting the nursery ready for our little girl I would like to do as much DIY projects as possible to make it more homey and of course cheaper!

So I had the idea of having our son Kyler paint the boxes!

He had a great time and they came out super cute!

We used washable children’s paint to keep it as clean as possible.

Of course Ky had a bath immediately after and it easily wipes off of the kitchen floor!

This was definitely fun for all of us and a great gift to his soon to be little sister.

I let them dry and now have them hanging in the nursery and am excited for more projects to come!
