Footprint Butterfly Flower Pots

I had seen some adorable footprint butterflies on Pintrest so I knew I wanted to do them with my 2 children.  


I did not buy flower pots for this activity.  I reused some containers that we got from Wal-Mart when we ordered some food to-go.  :)  


After we cleaned to containers I put some blue paint inside and attached the lid and let my daughter shake it around till it was covered.  


After the inside paint dried I took the kids outside and tried my best to get some cute foot prints.  Selah was giggling when I painted her feet because she is so ticklish.  Then Titus was crying because low and behold he is afraid of paint.  So a fun activity had a lot of drama involved but I still think they turned out adorable.  :)  


This was also a present for Mother's Day... Nana is coming to visit us in June so shhhhh... "it's still a secret."   :)

Those are so cute! Now I wish I had the paints and the pots:) I bet your littles had lots of fun! I love having those fun times with kids. They are few and far apart as far as I am concerned. Cherish the moments! Come by and visit us.

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her
