I just love CANVAS. I love to give my children the wooden canvas to draw on.
They are really cheap and a nice way to display their art (or your own art).
This was a gift for my mother for her birthday from my 2 kids. I always let them make the gifts themselves.
my big boy (age 6), did these two. (okey, this is one of the two he painted)
He just draw on it with a black marker. We decided it was for Granny’s lounge, so me and him painted it mainly red and orange (to go with the decor).
And of course, it was the little one’s turn. She is still too small to paint a picture. So, I gave her the canvas (outside on the grass) and some paint and a paintbrush. and this is what she did……
Firstly she painted:
then it’s was time for the hands:
I took a lot of photos while she was painting. I’ve chosen the 2 cutest photos. Printed them.
paste them on her “painting” with double sided tape. And for decoration, I glued scrapbooking corners on the photos.
and this was the end result:
It cost us about R50 to make these 3. but granny’s face (and tears) was priceless.
Send me photos of your children’s art on canvasses and I will post it for more inspiration for other mommies
