Did you know that Saturday is Grandparents Day? Well it is! And since Brielle is a lot more crafty this year versus last year, we made sure to get in some crafting time for our Gwenma, Pop Pop and Grandpa Jim!
We broke out our beloved Crayola 4ct Washable Fingerpaints, some paper and started to experiment!
How about a little paint on your fingers and have some fun? Nope. Not liking that.
How about a “paintbrush” made with a pipe cleaner and paper towel? Fun for a second then, boring!
How about using your hands IN the paint to make hand prints? Funny more than fun.
How about a paper plate filled with paint? YES!
That route is definitely her favorite painting style, as you’ve already seen during her Father’s Day and Mother’s Day crafting sessions. She loves to push on the plate to make prints on the paper and I’m perfectly ok with that!
We let her projects dry and once she was down for a nap, I transformed them into two sunshine crafts for her grandparents! Thank you Fisher Price and your Brilliant Basics Rock-a-Stack, which I used as concentric circle templates for the sun. The “rays” came from all the leftover scraps of her painting experiments.
Once assembled, I added a little tag up top to document her name and age. Lucky for you I turned this little tag into a free printable so you can make your own Grandparents’ Day project for choice in your home! Just click this link to download a 8.5×11 sheet containing 4 tags.
Happy Grandparents’ Day!
