I’ve wanted to do some arts and crafts with the kids. The weekend of the fourth was the perfect time to do so. This is a rather cheap project; it doesn’t require any prior painting or crafting experience. This is very level 1 in difficulty. lol
What you need:
Empty Bowls: I purchased a pack of store brand bowls from Target. Mine were paper but you can get whatever kind you like. Just make sure you have enough for each color to have its own bowl.
Blank Canvas: I got a 5 pack from Michael’s but any craft store will work. You can get whatever size you want, these canvas are hang ready. You don’t need any additional framing. I got this size because we were hanging the finished product up in my daughter’s room.
Paintbrushes: I’m a crafter so I already had these in my stash. But you can get a variety pack from any craft store. Mine included brushes and sponges, don’t be afraid to get a variety.
Water: I had a bowl of water for rinsing the brushes off between colors. I also had extra water on hand as the bowl will get dirty after a few color changes.
Paint friendly clothes: I put on some old clothes that I didn’t care about in case I got paint on me or she got paint on herself.
Paper towel: For clean up, and for drying the brushes after you rinse the paint off. It’s best to rinse your brushes and dry them off before sticking them into a new color.
Blank Canvas: See canvas details at the top.
Hot Glue gun: You can get from any craft store.
Glue sticks for your hot glue gun: Make sure you get the appropriate size for your gun.
Heat Gun or Hair dryer: We own a heat gun so we just used that but a hair dryer works too.
Crayons: The brand is up to you, we got cheap ones since we had to purchase so many. To get the look you want you will need multiple boxes of crayons.
