toddler art tuesdays {#3}

 This is easily becoming one of my favorite things to do with Jake. He loves colors and being creative {yaaaaay!!} so we both have so much fun. And as he's getting older, he's able to do more and more on his own. Double the awesome for this crafty momma.

Jake loved this one. He thought getting his hand painted was the best thing ever!!

I started with a dab of paint on each paper plate.  I used a sponge to cover Jake's hand with the color, then we stamped three hand prints on each piece of card stock. You can do more or less. I knew we wanted to make at least two turkeys so that gave us one extra hand print to spare.

While I cleaned up some of the paint, I gave Jake an extra sheet of paper to play with. This kiddo loves the paints. 

I finished out the rest of the turkey myself. I cut around each hand print. Then made a simple little turkey body with some construction paper. If you're kiddo is okay with scissors and a glue, he could do this himself as well!

This is also a great hostess give for wherever you might be traveling for Thanksgiving!
{yes, Mom, that means I'm bringing you one.}

This is a great craft for any time of year. And also one that I think older kids would love. 

You start by write your design {or secret message} in white crayon.

Then water color to your hearts context. The spot where you colored is basically water proof now so the design stays white.

I can't wait to start the Christmas crafts next week!!
