Kids Craft Idea

We've been BUSY !!

I got the girls new markers (Le Plume - Marvy Uchida), new stamps and they just can't stop crafting ! So we declared ourselves a holiday from school, and had fun colouring these and getting all our fingers dirty ...

TA-DA !!
 all the individual coloured images,

which i then assembled into a frame.
HERE's the FINISHED PRODUCT ...  that is now hanging atop the girls' craft table.

Super easy to do ! 
So if you have a long afternoon ahead and need to keep the kids occupied, here are some tips if you'd like to give this a go:

  • I used white cardstock. Kids chose what they wanted, stamped them using Versafine black ink, and got busy. If you do not have stamps, just print whatever the kids like from the computer or tear pages off colouring books and let them get going.
  • I then cut them out, inked the sides using distress inks, assembled them on black cardstock and put them in an Ikea black frame.
  • I couldn't resist and had to 'contribute' 1 image - can u guess which ?
  • I did the focal title tag, stuck the 'happy' sticker and 3D flowers, girls added the pearls to their animals and flower centers and DONE !!!
