How cute and simple – use non-toxic paints like finger paints. Make different colors and sizes by using different kids toes. Makes a great present for the Grandparents or a gift for Mothers or Fathers Day! Finish with straight simple lines for the stem and add an extra few strokes under the foot imprint.
On a pallet place purple on bottom and blue on top and mix together where they meet. This should be finger paint that is edible. The area of paint on pallet (which can just be cardboard) should be slightly larger than your child’s foot. Place your child’s foot into the paint and press firmly onto canvas. Make the top of the antennae with the big toes. Let dry. When dry with black paint and thin brush or with large sharpie markers and make body, face and antennae. You can make a few of these at one time that make excellent gifts for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day as well as Grandparents. Change out colors to make an interesting butterflies.
This is just such a great idea – and can be made small for personal servings or large to accommodate holding eggs or other special breads to serve with your Easter dinner…. and not as hard as you believe.
Start by covering a oven safe bowl with two layers of foil. With dough rolled out and cut into strips you will make a basket as shown on the outside of the bowl. Place a braided row at the top. Make an additional braided row for the handle. Bake following instruction for your bread recipe allowing some room to give and take.
You can cook regularly or wash the outside of basket with egg wash to give a deep golden color.
Wishing all mothers a very special Happy Mother’s Day – without all of the great mothers in the world today the world would not be a great place to live. Sacrifices you make carry your children through to adulthood but are never forgotten. A mothers love is always needed no matter how old your child gets.
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?
