Kid’s Craft Week #17-More Labels and Sun Cards

6 Aug

So, our craft this week was more painted labels!  It has become a favorite project, and as we won’t probably ever run out, I say why not?  🙂

This week, I broke out a roll of smaller labels, and addition to painting those and some bigger ones on our new craft table (yay!), we also made some cards with the smaller labels.

The cards came about because The Girlio didn’t want to put her fingers on the labels when she was painting, so I started taking one off of each sheet (I cut them down into smaller sections off the roll so they are easier for her to manage) so that she had a place to hold the labels while painting.

Well, I couldn’t bear the thought of throwing away labels (as if we will ever run out!), so I was trying to think of a way to use them.  That’s when I came up with the idea of making little suns on cards out of the leftover labels.

The Girlio wasn’t sure how to do it based off my sample, so I placed a small flashlight in the middle to help her go in a circle.  Not bad for a first try!  Lots of fun had by all-as usual!

Here are some pictures of the sun cards, and you can see just some of the painted labels in the background.  🙂

Oh, and one final thing.  I DID go buy a washable tablecloth for the craft table after this project!!!  Paint was everywhere!!!  🙂
