Kids Painting Craft - FALL

Happy Fall Y'all!  With the heat we've had this summer, I'm so grateful that we're going into the fall season.  It's one of my favorite seasons, so I knew we had to do something fun to celebrate.

As of late, the little one has really gotten into painting.  She LOVES it, and she is very creative for her age, so when I saw this idea on Pinterest, I knew we'd have to do something similar, just not as extravagant, as lovely as it is.

If you would like to do your own fall craft;
So proud of herself!

You'll Need:
1 piece of cut down posterboard (to fit your frame)
Frame
Acrylic Paint
Painters Tape
Old Shirt
Something to protect your floors (We use an old vinyl tablecloth)
2 willing hands and a foam brush

Lay out your work area, starting with your tablecloth, and have all your supplies out and handy.

Tape off the lettering you'd like your sign to read, and let your wee one have a ball!

After the painting has dried, carefully remove the painters tape, and see your discovery.


When you're finished, you should have one messy but happy child, a beautiful piece of artwork, 2 gray hairs, and lots of memories to cherish forever!
Top half - One happy happy girl
Bottom half - Messy Messy Girl :)

This is by far one of my most favorite painting projects we've done yet.  Highly encourage it!
