Lorraine received a pair of white canvas shoes from our lovely neighbour a year ago and can finally fit into them!
Decided to spruce up her kicks a little bit by painting them pink and silver!
- White canvas shoes
- Masking tape / painters tape to tape over parts that you don’t want to be painted
- Acrylic paint
- Paint sponges and/or brushes
- Sealant to make shoes waterproof
Lorraine received some modelling clay for her 2nd birthday and we had some fun with it this afternoon!
I actually had no idea how to do anything with the clay but luckily, there was google to the rescue!
Found a super easy caterpillar to make. I fastened mine with a toothpick since the clay just would not stick, even when I scored and wet it 🤷🏻♀️.
Next round I’ll buy some copper wires that are thin and can be bent!
- Modelling clay in various colours
- That’s all!
Today we tried the first of (hopefully) many fun activities, sponge stencil painting!
A nice, low-cost, fun activity that can be done indoors or outdoors, and exposes toddlers to art, alphabets, colours and textures! 👍🏻
- Water based paint (anything rinses off with water because toddlers)
- A plate of sorts to squeeze paint on
- Thick paper that does not get soggy when painted on (recommended: watercolour paper)
- Stencils (crafty mamas can create your own with a Silhouette Cameo, or just buy a cheap pre-cut stencil for $2 from Daiso if you’re lazy like me 😅)
- 1 x toddler
She ended up creating abstract art and ignored me when I tried to point out the alphabets, but she totally loved it!
