Okay, so I am loving the ideas coming from Shel at One Sweet World over the last few weeks. Today I am sharing another one of her wonderful projects which Reece loved and shared as Easter gifts with his Nana and Papa, Nono and Granddad and his Godparents.
The project is simple and yet creates a beautiful piece of art. We picked up some bristol board and a bottle of pop at the Dollar Store. At home, we mixed up some paint, I painted a cherry blossom branch on each piece of bristol board and then Reece grabbed the coke bottle and began adding the cherry blossoms.
He had a great time creating the cherry blossoms and was eager to share them with the people he loves.
Beautiful! What a lovely idea :-)ReplyDelete
you've been doing so many creative things! love this!ReplyDelete
We love being creative, it is so much fun!Delete
What a neat idea! Another way to do (and a bit more messy) is to let Reece put his finger tips in paint and have the "flower petals" be his finger prints.ReplyDelete
Thanks! And love your other way to do it, Reece would love that.Delete
I saw this on pinterest and wondered if it would really turn out if done by children. Now I see it does. Lovely! I think I would save this for my 5 year old, though as I am pretty sure my 2 year old would paint himself full of cherry blossoms.ReplyDelete
That's the first thing I thought too! My toddler would be all over the table. She's have cherry blossom gloves before she got any on the tree!Delete
It definitely does not look like the one on pinterest, but I was very please with how it turned out. I won't lie it was definitely a little messy, getting the paint from the plate to the painting with it dripping all over the place and then the splatter when Reece wanted to see what would happen if he hit the bottle down instead of pressing it...you get the picture.Delete
Messy = fun though, and he definitely had fun doing it.
Oh, I love cherry blossoms! What a fun project!ReplyDelete
sooo fun. they turned out beautiful!!! :)ReplyDelete
Love. Love. Love. And what a nice gift to give!! I love how they are all a bit different, too. Thanks for sharing.... I will be doing this craft!!ReplyDelete
Thanks Kelly. Everyone who received one loved it too :)Delete
What a really neat project! I love how he actually followed the branches of the tree. Sofia would have been off the tree and on to the table. I suppose that's the difference between two and half and three!ReplyDelete
Yeah, he follows direction fairly well...most of the time :)Delete
How clever! I'll have to check out One Sweet World too.ReplyDelete
Thanks Lisa. I think you will like Shel over at One Sweet World, she is awesome.Delete
That is the sweetest idea! I am going to have to pick up a bottle of coke [that's what we call all soda in the south] and do this with the wee one!ReplyDelete
Thanks Tracey. And yes I know too well that it is called soda in the south, spent two weeks every summer from age 6 to 16 in Myrtle Beach :)Delete
Hope the wee one likes it!
beautiful! i can imagine how proud he must have been to share his art! ps- i enjoyed your toddler food post over at little homestead in the desert :)ReplyDelete
Thanks Heather, glad you enjoyed the post.Delete
And yes, Reece was so proud to share his artwork. He gets this little grin on his face as he shares it with them, super cute.
How great is using a bottle for this- perfect.
Thanks! It really is perfect :)Delete
