We decided to make you some Easter crafts when working with #CollectiveBias and #ColorfulCreations. So, we went on over to Walmart and picked up a variety of Crayola options to work with.
See how bundled up I am? That's because this was taken in Minnesota. Where it is completely and horribly cold. So I'm not looking that cute. But you can see that I'm trying, so doesn't that count?
The first Easter craft we are going to show you how to do is make a Paint-By-Number tablecloth. You only need 3 supplies; a permanent marker, kraft paper (or something similar), and Crayola Kid's Paint. It's washable. That's important. But it is not meant to be used on faces/bodies.
Start off by writing a message or drawing a simple picture in pencil, so you can erase it if you make a mistake. Then re-do the outline in permanent marker.
This is Nellie and The Bellie doing this craft in our pajamas.
After you create the message, start drawing random extra lines all over the place. Your mission is to impossibly confuse the message.
Okay, so we left ours still a little easy. We didn't want the kiddos to have too much difficulty figuring it out. That would just be sad.
We then decided on a color code. Make sure that you use the same number for every letter in the message. For us, that meant having all of the letters in Orange. That way they stand out against everything else.
If you look closely, you can see that the "E" in this picture has all "1's" for each of the little sections connected to it. You might need to think carefully before you write down the numbers so you don't mess it up. Also notice that we didn't use 1's anywhere else in the picture. Just the letters.
Levi showing us whether it worked. It did! Next time, we'll make it harder. They're just too smart.
