National Siblings Day
Our friend Carly is an ever clever mom and with this sweet little holiday approaching, she’s inspiring us with a fun and easy craft project to unite the kiddos! Let’s take a look:
Time to Complete: 15 minutes
- Poster Paper
- Washable Poster Paint (3 or more colors)
- Paint Tray or Wax Paper
- Heavy object to hold down poster paper
- Picture Frame of choice
- Gold Metallic Pen (optional)
We ended up doing a big messy cooperative art project using things we already had around the house. I pulled out a roll of poster paper (seriously the best investment if you have tiny creators in your house), three colors of washable poster paint, some wax paper to put the paint on, and some cans of soup to hold the poster paper down while the kids worked. Each child got their own color because I wanted to be able to tell the handprints apart when they were finished, but other than that there were no rules.
Fifteen minutes and six painty hands later, the kids got a bath and I got a huge gorgeous piece of art to work with. After letting it dry, I picked out some of my favorite sections to frame. I used a gold pen to write the year and everyone’s names next to their handprints and then we scattered the pictures around our home. The kids love having framed art that they created in their rooms and I love that they have each have a little piece of something they made together.
