I know i have posted about our wrapping paper tradition. But what makes this special is the fact that my youngest has now started to join in the fun. Looking forward to many more wrapping paper decorating with both my girls. Tomorrow is the school’s birthday and we were asked to buy CD’s as presents for the school. We did hand prints for the wrapping paper today.
A while ago I made my diva a Big sister t-shirt to wear at the hospital at the birth of her baby sister. Today was a rainy day and to keep my divas occupied I thought I’d do a re-run of this activity, as my niece has not done something like this before. They each got out of their cupboard a plain t-shirt. I clipped it to a clipboard with pegs, so it wont move around and gave them the fabric paint and brush to draw whatever they desire. It was a sure hit.
And My diva modeled her latest creation for me.
My diva had a heart garland hanging on her bed that has seen better days. so I decided we must make a new one.
What you need:
- I’m making 4 butterflies so 4 thick paper stock
- acrylic paint ( in your desired colour )
- butterfly templates
- One eager toddler
it was such a stunning day outside that we did this craft out side. I gave my diva the paint. she choose which colours and which betterfly must have which colour.
once painted we waited for it to get dry. and I cut out the butterflies.
then I punched holes on either sides thread through the ribbon and hanged it.
As i recently did some craft with chalkboard paint i thought why not try it on a cup and surprise my diva with random drawings. Not that i’m any piccasso.
I took a normal plastic drinking cup and marked out a block with some masking tape. and painted the marked off space with the chalkboard paint.
My diva loves the shapes i draw for her.
P.S this is not meant for dishwasher. It will hold up with light handwashing.
After wrapping all my christmas pressie. Yes i’m that organised 😉 Just joking. we will be leaving to go visit the family over the festive season so the pressies has to be wrapped before we leave. So tried out my rubber stamps Oh and for those who do not know the wrapping paper is courtesy of my diva. We have not bought any wrapping paper since we started this little tradition of her decorating wrapping paper.
