craft thursday #2

well…we were only at home about 1 hour on thursday.
so we had CRAFT FRIDAY.
it wasn't really a craft….more of a project.

i bought paint pods from ACE hardware. (real paint in little sizes)
and sponge brushes.

and they painted the old picnic table.

i bought one brush for each color.
and threw them away after we were done.
no mixing colors and no washing brushes.

they did a good job.

when they were done i went around and cleaned up the drips and painted in some spots.
but for the most part it was all them.
and it was good.

the picnic table is really bright and ready for summer snack time.

Kimberly Au - cute idea. our kid table is already painted so i can’t do this one. but I did have my kindergartners make Georgia O’Keefe like watercolor paintings last week. they loved that project. and they turned out beautifully. can’t wait to see next week’s craft!

Nice work guys 🙂

Kate @ Songs Kate Sang - What a GREAT idea. I LOVE it!

Tracy Fisher - I love your picnic table. Have your kids paint their handprints and put them somewhere on the table so you can look back years later and see how they’ve grown. We did that for my mom… and I tear up every time I see those chubbly little hand prints (and one baby foot print). Thanks for sharing all of your crafts with us. I love them!!
Tracy
