All it took was a small canvas, masking tape, washable paint and paintbrushes! And of course, a table cloth and bib to protect my table and Kate's clothes!
Here are the snowflakes all taped up and ready to go!
"Let's do this, Mom!"
After a coat of blue paint, we let it dry for a few hours and then went back over it with a coat of silver glitter paint. Once that coat was dry, we pulled off the tape and there were our snowflakes! I traced around the outside with a black sharpie just to make them stand out a bit more. As Kate watched me tracing she said "You're an incredible drawer, Mom!" She has become quite generous with her compliments lately, but who am I to complain? I guess it takes LOTS of skill to trace snowflakes- a skill which, according to Kate, I apparently am incredible at.
And.... the finished product!
