Monday was a holiday (MLK Day) and so I had to come up with ways to entertain my 3 kids since they weren’t going to school. I had this craft all ready to go, and it kept them busy for a good 30 minutes. They enjoyed the process since it involved finger painting and making a mess. 🙂
Kids’ Name Artwork
You will need acrylic paints of your choice, a canvas, painter’s tape and a child. I bought my canvases at Michaels’. They had 2 to a pack on sale for about $7. You can buy the acrylic paints at Michael’s or Joann Fabrics. I bought mine at Wisconsin Craft Market. They can range between $1-$2.
The first thing you do is tape your child’s name on the canvas. Do the best you can. Upper case letters are a bit easier than lower case. That’s all the prep you need to do before you let the kids loose. I let each kid pick out 3-4 colors and then I put dollops of paint on paper plates. Tell the child to cover the entire canvas with paint.
When the child is done painting, let the paint dry.
Pull off the tape.
And there you have it! Easy, fun and makes a great decoration for the child’s room.
