Spring crafts

20140310-171914.jpg

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.

Blog Wagon

Hopping back on the blog wagon!

We moved to a new home and need some decor!

We will switch what’s in the frames each season.

It being spring we are doing spring like projects!

Once it’s time to change the art I will add to a binder full of their crafts!

This is the way I’ll organize them onto the kitchen wall.

Tadoodles toddler painting

Tadoodles 18+ months

I have good and bad reviews for this one actually!

This is a super messy way of painting! I know I know… Painting with a toddler is always messy but I definitely think this is a huge pain to clean and play with.

My son had a great time as he does with anything that makes a mess so I can’t complain there but me as the cleaner upper don’t want to give it another go.

The station itself gets super messy fom missing the middle section and when he would press them too firmly it would splatter paint everywhere.

Personally I prefer paint brushes over these but everyone has their own opinions. ๐Ÿ™‚

Washable children’s paint

I love these Crayola finger paints! It comes out of anything with just water. My little one has a great time painting and I don’t worry about it covering him from head to toe knowing that it will easily come off.

I use his high chair food tray for a lot of things because it’s so easy to clean after. I think he enjoys blending the colors on the tray more than putting it on the paper.

I love doing simple things with him that make him so happy! Next I’m going to get a few canvases so that he can paint a few pictures for the new nursery.

Recycling Table

This is one of my favorite projects that Mom did awhile ago. It’s a cool addition to the room, everyone always comments on the table!

  • She sanded down an old table
  • Freshly painted the legs
  • Tore pages out of an old fairy tale book
  • Put Mod Podge all over the table
  • Put the pages on the table
  • Put Mod Podge all over the tops of the pages using a foam brush

You could buy a cheap old flea market table and turn it into a piece of art!

This is a great idea for recycling. Give it a try! ๐Ÿ™‚

Quilling Letters

My Mom’s been working on making each of us our own framed quilled first initial.

She started by making my son Kyler a K and my sister Jennifer a J! ๐Ÿ™‚

They were both still being worked on when our lovely family dog Nitro accidentally sat on the J!

These are adorable and I love the look of them popping out of the frame.

This will take time but as does any other project mom gets herself into.

I can’t wait to post more of Mom’s awesome work, I totally love these letters… great idea!

With a snuggly cute face like Nitro’s you can’t be mad of course, so off to make a new J Mom goes!
