Some Sunshine after all the gloomy sickness talks..:)
This year for SD’s birthday,the girls ( with some help from me!) made this masterpiece,as his present.
SD loved it 🙂 The best part was Ananya felt involved too..:) I let her stick a button or two as well and she loved feeling the wet paint on her hands-even wanted to taste it!
Aadya had a blast,picking ‘Just the right button’ to fill up the heart for her daddy..and hand-printing is her favorite activity,EVER!
Daddy dearest was touched 🙂
This is what we made yesterday:
I call them color’em crazy bottles.
watered down glue
used and washed yogurt bottles(we used Yakult bottles)
First we stuck torn tissue paper bits on the yogurt bottles and let it dry for a couple hours.
Then I let Ms.Aadya go crazy with paint.. And I love the result!
Today is going crazy..its amazing I am writing this post.. don’t think there will be any crafting today… 😦
Today’s craft was really fun to do,because Ms.Aadya loves anything to do with paint.And because there is still a day left for Shruti’s Artsy-Craftsy,we stuck to the flower-theme.
Today we made cardboard flower door hanger to hang on Aadya’s bedroom door.
Used Paper towel roll
String to hang
The petals are made of used Paper towel roll.
Flatten the roll and cut it sideways to get rings.Open the rings up to get petal shape.
Color the petals with a paint of your choice, we used crafting paint from the dollar store.
Let it dry.
Cut the cardboard in a shape of your choice-We cut circles and colored them using watercolors in contrasting colors with the petal colors.
If you want to avoid using glue, assemble your flowers on the wet paint.
Inspiration: I loved this necklace that Filth Wizardry had made- and thats what we started to make..but when I cut the loops,I figured,we could squeze in one more flower craft!
