I planned to post today for kitchen week, but life had other plans. The little Henry-man is sick as can be, which means lots of holding and rocking and soothing. No complaints about the snuggle time. (And just a few complaints about the lack of sleep.) Anyhoo, I’ll try to wrap up the kitchen posts next week. (Until then, make sure to check out our full kitchen tour and IKEA cabinets review.)
But, before the weekend begins, I did want to drop in after bedtime with a quick Easter craft that we whipped up before the little guy took a turn for the sick. This would be a great project for kids to do this weekend, just in time for Easter.
I wanted to make a little something for Easter. And I know Henry’s too little to do most crafts. But I didn’t let that stop me. So I got him down to his diaper and put him in the bathtub for our first adventure in finger painting.
Let’s just say it turned into full-body and entire-bathtub painting. But we ended up with a few pages of Henry finger paint art.
(I wish I would have gotten a photo of my son covered head to toe in nontoxic Crayola paints, but let’s just say that keeping the slippery little paint monster in the tub was a full-time job. Also, I’ll have you know that the paints totally are washable. Thank you, Crayola.)
To dress up the page for Easter, I cut a piece of Kraft paper on the Silhouette with a bunny and the phrase “Some bunny loves you.” I simply pasted the cut page to the top of the finger painted page. The cut areas allow the painted areas to show through. The painting ended up taking on a marbled effect, which is actually really cool.
What do you think?
Do you love Henry’s first masterpieces as much as I do?
