We’ve moved our blog! Check it out here: http://blog.vickybarone.comNot only did we all fight the flu as a family, but we also had the opportunity (between naps) to do quite a lot of projects together when Oliver was home sick! (Check out our Froot Loop Rainbows!)
Like all good last-minute projects, this creative craft is all over Pinterest
! Here’s one example
we liked a lot.
What you need: bell peppers (we bought one with three ridges and one with lucky number four), a knife, green paint (we used a few different shades of acrylic, but you can also use tempura), plastic plates, paper, and a paint brush.
First, we cut each pepper in half to make four stamps that fit just right in little hands.
Next, we unrolled the art paper on Oliver’s table in the playroom so he would have a big canvas for his masterpiece. We filled up some plates with paint and watched as Ollie went to town stamping away. He had so much fun!
By the end, we had mixed the different greens to make marbleized shamrocks.
When we had used every last inch of paper (Oliver made sure of it), we took a foam paint brush and used the excess paint to make stems on each shamrock!
We all had a lot of fun with this project and it got us all very excited for St. Patrick’s Day! We hope you enjoy it too!
