Use favorite colored ornaments either made from plastic or glass (caution should be taken when working with children and glass ornaments). ‘Paint’ child’s hand using white (or choose a color and be bold) finger paint. Have them grab a hold of the bottom of the bulb making sure not to squeeze bulb or to move once hand has made contact with the bulb. Have the child gently remove their fingers first by pulling straight off. Then remove palm. Decorate the ‘snowmen’. You might want to spray a protective coating of polyurethane to keep the paint from peeling. You could also use glue instead of paint and just glitter the whole hand. Great keepsake and would be a perfect gift for grandparents, uncles and aunts.
What a great idea for a card for Mom on Mother’s Day.Fold a piece of construction paper (or card stock that you can decoupage on or color/paint a design on) and block outline the word MOM on one folded half. Make sure the top of MOM touches the top fold. This does not have to look perfect by any means – letters can be rounded out or have some waves in them. Be creative and have lots of fun. Decorate the front with stickers, glitter, colored glue, paint, etc. When done trim once again to give the edges a clean look. You can do this same design using the words DAD for Father’s Day or BABY for a baby shower or how about the name of the recipient?
I am always amazed at how creative someone can decorate Easter eggs! These beauties were all dyes to start with of the artists favorite color ‘purple’. This gave a base color to work with. The artist used the same dye in different amounts of dye to bring out different shades of the color. Some went on even further to be painted. You can see glitter and sequins being used here. But what else could be used to decorate eggs. This would be a perfect time to bring out the little craft left overs and see just how creative you can be. If you are using solvents on these it would be best not to eat them if you are making on hard boiled eggs for health safety.
