Summertime, in the scorching desert, is the time of year that we hibernate. If water is not involved then don’t expect to find us outside while the sun is up.
It’s not happening.
This staying inside can occasionally cause a challenge to keep the kids busy and not complaining of boredom.
Don’t get me wrong. I am a firm believer that it’s healthy for kids to get a little bored and learn to entertain themselves.
Mom is not your entertainer.
However, projects that are provided will prove to keep those small idle hands busy and perhaps teach them something new.
For example, drive mom crazy enough and she will give you and your friends paints….
**Glitter – optional
This is fairly simple so I’m not going to go into too much detail.
1.Using the cups and your chosen color, dip the cup into the paint and apply to your canvas/poster/foam board
We used foam board
2. After the circles are finished have your artists start painting them in.
Acrylic craft paint dries quickly so dry time shouldn’t be too much of an issue.
3. Once they are finished stand back and admire.
I have a million bottles of glitter for some reason so I pulled them all out and gave them the option of using some.
If you are going to use glitter I suggest you wait until all the paint has dried, apply a layer of Mod Podge Matte or Gloss finish and dump on a large amount. After a few minutes, shake off the excesses.
To preserve our art work, I sprayed it with Mod Podge in spray can.
Love to see what you make!
