How cute are these little guys – they would not be a worry to find them in your garden. Select rocks with a nice shape similar to the ones that are in the picture. Acrylic paints were used – you could even use paint that glows in the dark. They are sealed with three coats polyurethane to allow them to be used for many years.
When the reservations come in go get large letters of each child s name. Have lots of stickers, paints, glitter, paper, glue, pipe cleaners, sequins, brushes (for glue and paint) and any other little embellishments kids can decorate with. Don’t forget the plastic tablecloth – when the kids are done grab each of the four corners and bring to the top – discard. Such an easy cleanup.
Take a serving tray with separation and add things like buttons,small twigs,ribbons,sequins and other small findings. Have the circles cut out before you begin – as well as the hats. When you are ready bring your little ones to the table and let them design snowman’s – and it really does not cost much. Felt of the circles can be bought for $.25 cents each and twigs are free. Other findings you probably have in your craft storage.
A simple frame and two heavy duty closet rod shelf brackets make a perfect setting for your ambitious little artist. Make sure brackets go secuely into studs because a lot of force can be done by a small child when he/she pulls the paper down. You also might want to add an outside door rug in front to catch scribbles that would otherwise end on the floor – or if the child is slightly older maybe they might want to paint and it will catch drippings. What a great idea!
