O'fish'ally the best!

I am a strong enough person to admit that I am a junkie!  I found this super cute idea for a teacher valentine gift, and it cost virtually nothing!

All you need is a computer [which you obviously have if you are reading this], printer, goldfish crackers [or you can use Swedish fish candy], and a ziploc baggie.

The whole thing took less than an hour to do!

Finger Painting Masterpiece!

Once again, I found this idea on Pinterest, and had to try it out!

(What did we do before that website?)

Materials needed:
Canvas [I bought a 16 x 20" canvas that was stretched over a wooden frame]
Washable Finger Paint [I used Crayola]
Masking Tape

Step 1:
Tape off what you are making.  I taped the lettering off and my son did the rest. 

Step 2
Put finger paint onto palette...I used a pumpkin divider plate of my son's.

Step 3:
Begin painting your masterpiece...

Finished! Now be patient and let your masterpiece dry... Then SLOWLY peel up the tape...
First the "L"
 Then the "I"
This is a gift for my cousin's daughter. Parker and I hope she likes it!

Happy Painting!
