Painting Letters

I had so much fun with little ones today. A couple of neighborhood kids came over to do some crafts with me.

Today we painted letters. You know those 8″ craft wooden letters

Mariah painted the front of the letters in 4 different colors:

This year she is into pastels! You can buy the paint at Walmart here. We used foam brushes. I had purchased this large variety of “>foam brushes for $4.77…what a buy! Great for kid crafts! Then I came up with idea of painting the insides and around the letter in a coordinating color. Mariah was hesitant at first, and I think she was getting tired.  So I ended up finishing it for her.

The finishing result is so beautiful…I love these!

I wanted to show you what I did with my letter:

I’m love crafts that include shells. I purchased the shells above through Amazon. I wanted a big bag. I ended up lightly painting them with a gloss white. They have all white also….but not in the big packages.

You can hang these letters with these

We had such a fun day!

I was introduced to this site below….I thought you parents with kiddos may want to see this:
