Fun craft to do with kids – a pot decoration idea
Probably many have heard the expression that “Thailand is The Land of Smiles” and arriving there, you will see that this is true, everybody smiles in the streets, in the stores, and in a state facility you will be greeted with a smile and even ceramic figurines look at you with a smile, causing a reciprocal emotion.
While vacationing in Thailand, we did not stop to look for fun crafts to do with kids, and found many new things. I did liked the pots for flowers in the shape of animals – elephants, giraffes, rabbits,sheep, so I bought a few. I wanted to teach Timmy to replant flowers, but we decided that these pots should be slightly brightened and that’s what we’ve got:
This is how the pots looked in the beginning, of course, they were also very nice, but after our creativity I like them more … Half an hour of pleasure, acrylic and finger paints and…
Timmy chose to decorate a bunny, well, I got a piggy. He did it quite interesting in the beginning, at first – gently, but then he began to mix paints, I was a little distracted and when I again drew attention to the work of Timmy, his bunny was almost entirely black. It is surprisingly, because for children at this age it is difficult to paint the entire surface without adults’ assistance, but Timmy did it.
And I was fascinated by painting with fluorescent acrylic paints…
When the black layer dried, we left the prints of colorful finger paints and it is a very interesting pot decoration on my quite. Then we planted a wonderful flowers in each pot, and animals got “hair”))
On the same evening the crafts have found new owners, the piggy was given as a birthday present to a friend, and Timmy gave his bunny to a Thai neighbor.
