A gift for Dad:)

Some Sunshine after all the gloomy sickness talks..:)

This year for SD’s birthday,the girls ( with some help from me!) made this masterpiece,as his present.

 

 

SD loved it 🙂  The best part was Ananya felt involved too..:) I let her stick a button or two as well and she loved feeling the wet paint on her hands-even wanted to taste it!

Aadya had a blast,picking ‘Just the right button’ to fill up the heart for her daddy..and hand-printing is her favorite activity,EVER!

Daddy dearest was touched 🙂

Craft-a-thon Day 3

This is what we made yesterday:

I call them color’em crazy bottles.
Material used:
tissue paper
watered down glue
used and washed yogurt bottles(we used Yakult bottles)

First we stuck torn tissue paper bits on the yogurt bottles and let it dry for a couple hours.
Then I let Ms.Aadya go crazy with paint.. And I love the result!

Today is going crazy..its amazing I am writing this post.. don’t think there will be any crafting today… 😦

Craft-a-thon -Day 2

Today’s craft was really fun to do,because Ms.Aadya loves anything to do with paint.And because there is still a day left for Shruti’s Artsy-Craftsy,we stuck to the flower-theme.
Today we made cardboard flower door hanger to hang on Aadya’s bedroom door.
Lookie-Look 🙂


Material used:
Used Paper towel roll
Cardboard
Paint
PVA glue
cotton.
String to hang

The petals are made of used Paper towel roll.
Steps:
Flatten the roll and cut it sideways to get rings.Open the rings up to get petal shape.
Color the petals with a paint of your choice, we used crafting paint from the dollar store.
Let it dry.
Cut the cardboard in a shape of your choice-We cut circles and colored them using watercolors in contrasting colors with the petal colors.
If you want to avoid using glue, assemble your flowers on the wet paint.

Inspiration: I loved this necklace that Filth Wizardry had made- and thats what we started to make..but when I cut the loops,I figured,we could squeze in one more flower craft!
