Spring Break is here !
Which means …..so are the kids lol
Last week , I promised them some crafts and creative shenanigans but I didn’t have time to go to the store #bummer.
No worries ! Need something to keep them entertained while you do laundry ? Or maybe just keep them busy to pass some time ?
In my crafting stash, I had a canvas pack on hand – why not let them paint ? Each kiddo chose 2-3 colors which gave us a nice variety. I covered the kitchen table in wax paper and I let them get creative (wax paper was secured with painter’s tape) .
I snapped a couple of photos while the kids were painting and while the art was drying . The Young One painted with finger paint while in his high chair 🙂
I know you’re thinking … that’s great but once they’re done, drying time means bored kids though ? Nope, I let them cover the living room table with Contact Paper and handed out some sharpies ! The contact paper on the table had bubbles in it . I wanted to put it down myself , but I could see it in their eyes and let them have at it . This activity kept them busy for a long time and it kept me laughing the entire time .
I love this idea and I’ll be planning a part 2 . It’s a great way to expose the kids to some creativity and also get some decorative art for your space . Plus, they get to be as creative as they’d like with no mess .
Supplies on hand:
-Old t-shirts and bibs for brushes
-Water cups to clean the brushes
