Homemade Painted Name Frames

With the new house comes new decorating! :)  I wanted the kids to help create the art for their rooms so we created some neat name canvas prints.  :) 

JoAnn's had the canvas on sale so that was a bonus.  The kids then picked out some paint.  Selah picked pink, purple, and yellow, and Titus picked yellow, blue, and green.  

I used painters tape to write there names.  This tape is easy to pull off and I was happy with the results.  There were only a couple small spots where paint seeped through a little bit.  

It was fun watching the two paint.  Titus used a brush for a little bit then had fun using his fingers.  Selah on the other hand did not want her color's to mix.  She used her fingers for most of her painting.  

So what do you think?  I LOVE THEM!!!!!  :)  I think we might have to do this again!  :) 


Those are cute! It's great seeing kiddos create something all on their own.
We did something similar last winter, but I used stickers for the letters.
Just looked at them! Now I want to do my favorite Bible Verses! :) :) :) Next Rainy day I think I might be doing one myself!!! :)

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!
