I’m constantly surprised by the artwork my children create! I’m completely biased, of course, but I pretty much love everything they make! It’s really fun watching their art evolve from faint scribbles to darker scribbles to my son’s newest technique he has dubbed “color mixing,” which is pretty much using as many colors as possible on one sheet of paper and leaving no empty space – it’s awesome.
Since my kids are really into coloring and painting right now, I’ve been trying to find new ways to display their artwork other than the pictures all over our fridge and walls. We created these little mini canvas art gifts to give away as party favors at our color-themed party earlier this year. They are wonderful little gifts and would be great as Mother’s Day gifts for kids to make! We made a bunch so I kept a couple for our house as well and I love displaying one at my desk.
They are super easy to create and the supplies are all available at your local craft store or on Amazon.
I let my kids go crazy with finger paint and these fun sponge pouncers I had on hand. They liked dabbing them and sliding them and creating different textures. You could use paint brushes instead of the sponges or just let your kids use their fingers!
Once they were finished, we gifted them, along with a mini easel! You could also add a magnet and they’d be perfect for the fridge! Don’t forget to add your child’s name and the date to the back :)
