toddler art tuesday {#15}

It's been quite awhile since our last edition of Toddler Art Tuesdays! Jake does a lot of arts and crafts at school and has gotten into quite a rhythm at home of watercolors, crayons or colored pencils. 

Definitely time for a new project or two!


We elected to make these fun thumbprint bookmarks as a Valentine's Day present for a few of Jake's favorite folks.

He is a huge fan of using the ink pads and stamps!

I started with just a cut of white paper. We added three sets of thumbprints to look like hearts.

Then I got fancy and scalloped the edges before mounting them to some red construction paper. We wrote some special messages on the back and had Jake sign his name.
I sealed the bookmarks in contact paper to keep it from tearing up. And then punched a hole for a ribbon. I think they turned out so cute!

And since this kiddo loves to paint, I decided it was a good time to break out the real paints. For this project, we did a contrast painting using Q-tips as brushes.

I started with a piece of card stock and a heart cut out (from plain old paper).

The heart cut out when on top with a little piece of tape, and then I told Jake to dab away with those Q-tips.
This is a great project that you really can't mess up. The end result is always beautiful!

It was nice to get back into the swing of some of our own fun little projects!
