I recently saw an idea like this on our favorite website ever, Pinterest. Here’s a link: http://aidenandmaya.blogspot.com/2011/11/aidens-name-in-painters-tape.html to the original idea. This brave Mama gave her young child paint. That ain’t happening in this house or in this life. :) So, instead, we went with crayons and painter’s tape. I gave them all watercolor paper (because I like the texture and it’s what I had) and I taped their initials off for them. Then, I let them go to town.
This is the hard part for me.
I want all of their crafts to be perfect.
I need to get over it.
Afterwards, we gently peeled off the tape and had these fun letters to hang in the girls’ playroom. I love them and best of all, they kept my kids busy on a cooped up, winter day.
