Mommy & Me Paint Night ~Watch Live And Paint From Home

Summer Butterfly Painting

 

Thanks for everyone who has been joining us for our Mommy and Me Paint Nights, Live on Facebook!  We have really enjoyed teaching you and your kids how to paint and helping you learn as we go.  We hope you will grab your friends, grab your kids and plan to join us again  Friday  at 6pm mst for another live Paint Night!  Next class will be 5/20 live on our facebook page at 6pm mst. 

What you will need for this weeks painting 5/20 :

Paint Brushes  this week you will only need three brushes for this project, a  large wide flat brush to do your background.  You will also need a nicer brush to do the fine lines on butterfly, so  a  small/ medium flat brush  will work great  like in this  nicer brush set. You will also need the liner brush in this set.

Acrylic Paint   For this weeks class you will need  Yellow, Ripe Tomatoe, Cobalt Blue, Fucshia, Lilac Mist, Bimini Blue and Black

Canvas  a 8X10 canvas is the the best and easiest surface to paint on.  You can buy a 12 pack  and get them for about a dollar each, super cheap and fun project for your kids. BUT if you do not have money for a canvas no worries we show you how to paint on the back of a cereal box too.  Yes we just cut up a cardboard cereal box and used that as our canvas.  This is a great option if you are doing a youth group, girls scout troop or school project and do not have funds to buy a canvas for everyone.

Apron or large shirt, is a good idea to keep your kids clean. Acrylic paint is hard to get out of clothing once it drys.  So have your kids put on an apron to help keep their clothes protected.

Paint Palette is also a nice option, but if you don’t have one you can just use a styrofoam  plate.

Artist Brush Tub ~ or something to hold your water and to clean your brushes that will not tip over easy.

Thanks to Holiday Haven for this guest post, loved this idea!

School is almost out in most places. That means SCREEN TIME or, so my kids think. But, I have gotten ‘crafty’ on them and made up these little redeemable coupons that they can earn.
I haven’t decided just yet what they will have to do to earn them. Chores? Probably. Reading? They like to read so I might just leave that as something they can do after they run out of certificates. A good dead? Definitely, I love to reward them for good works.
I do know I will only allow them to earn 2 hours worth each day, and they can save them up or use them one at a time. And because I have some smarties who might figure out to look at mom’s blog for these I think I will add the clause: ‘only good with mom’s signature on the back’. You are welcome to print these and use them for your household if you would like. I made them in 10, 15, and 20 minute increments to suit whatever works best for you.
To print: click on the photo to expand it then set your cursor over the photo and right click it and select print photo. Or once the photo is expanded click ‘file’ and ‘print’ from the menu at the top of your browser. If you have any trouble try adjusting things in ‘print preview’ or saving the file to your computer or paint program and printing from there. (If using Firefox, you may need to click once to expand them and then again to magnify before printing, they should print out as a full page). Enjoy!

Kindergarten Graduation Snacks ~ Healthy and Fun!

Do you have a kindergartener this year?  I do, and wanted to provide a snack for his graduation party.  I don’t know about your child’s class, but I think most of them get plenty of sugary treats during their parties!  That is fine, but why not have something cute, and at least somewhat healthy too?!

You will need:

Fruit cups or applesauce cups

4×4 inch card stock squares (1 per cup)

googly eyes

glue stick

Sharpie (optional)

bakers twine, thin strips of paper, or ribbon

kindergarten graduation snacks ~ healthy and fun, #healthysnacks, #easysnacks, #graduation, #kindergarten, #graduationsnack, #easycrafts, #easysnacks

Begin by cutting your squares of paper into 4×4 squares.

Then, Turn your fruit cup upside down and glue the square to the bottom of the cup.  The thin plastic to open it should now be on the bottom.  Once that is glued onto the bottom of the cup, glue the googly eyes.  I found they stayed on fine with normal glue stick, but if your fruit cup is textured or more round then mine, a hot glue gun may work better.  Glue the eyes on and draw a face with your sharpie if you desire.

Now, cut three strips (per cup) of bakers twine, ribbon, or even of paper.  Tie them in a small knot at the top and glue them to the top of your graduation cap. (The square you glued on first)

Feel free to write something on the top, or leave it plain!  Would work for any graduate.  Would also make a fun addition to a gift basket of supplies for the high school graduate that is headed to college.  I provided some links above for the products on Amazon, why not order them now and be ready to make them when the time comes?
