Melting Snowman

Leftover pumpkin from Fall decorations? Create this melting snow person with just a few steps. Get the kids involved to save time. My littles really enjoyed helping pick out and paint rocks.

Here is what you’ll need:

* Pumpkin

* White, Red, Black Acrylic Paint

* Rocks (30-ish)

* Sticks

* Cellophane (clear gift wrap)

* UV Spray (optional)

Step 1- Paint the face

Using black paint (or Sharpie) make eye and mouth ovals. Also trace the outline of carrot nose with it’s notches.

Step 2-Paint the rest of the pumpkin white. Don’t forget the tip of the stem because it will be the pom pom on the hat.

Step 3-Paint the stem red

Step 4-Paint rocks white, except for three smallish roundish ones. Those need to be painted black for the buttons.

Step 5-Paint a white puddle on cellophane

Step 6-Pick a spot and assemble snowman

Once everything is dry, carefully place rocks and pumpkin on cellophane. If you picked a spot outdoors spraying a coat of UV protectant might be a good idea. Hopefully, you have a few dead branches lying around from the last frost. I’m still debating if I want to add a scarf…will you? Make your melting snow person and post it under this “pin.” Looking forward to seeing your creations🤗

Valentine’s Rose Painting

In 4 easy steps, your littles can paint roses for loved ones this Valentine’s Day. Here’s what you’ll need:

-paper

-2 plates

-red & green paint

Step 1-Pour red paint in one plate and green paint in the other.

Step 2-Paint the side of your hand red as pictured above and stamp the paper. Make sure you paint the thumb side for best results. My five year old painted the pinky side red and her roses look more like tulips or closed buds. They are still pretty though as you can see below.

Step 3-Paint the side of your pinky green to stamp the stems.

Step 4-Paint your thumb green for leaf stamping.

And there you have it! Wishing you and yours a Happy Valentine’s Day! Until next time…

Take Care❤
