One of my goals for 2015 was to make a craft with my kiddos once a month. Lyla crafts at school & the library but that doesn’t count, that’s not with me. Plus, I am not crafty and I could use the practice. Time to tackle all the random kid crafts I have been pinning for years on Pinterest.
With Valentine’s Day right around the corner it was the perfect opportunity for Lyla to make a finger paint LOVE canvas to hang in our house. I had a few of the items & I picked up a few items from Hobby Lobby. I bought a bunch of 2 oz acrylic paints, they were about 85 cents each. Make sure to choose a non-toxic paint. I love this craft because even if you don’t have everything it is a low cost, cute craft.
She said she wanted to hang it in her room so I let her pick colors that matched her room. I was so happy with her selection. I think I have a little artist. She said, “Mommy, let’s do this again!”
What you need:
- 8×10 canvas ($3.99 for a pack of two at Hobby Lobby)
- Paint (any colors or type you want)
- Duct tape
- Paper plate
