Repurpose Your Child's Art

If you are like me, I have a hard time throwing away my child's artwork.  So before you "recycle" it, try using it for a card to grandma or to wrap up a present.  Here are two we just made for papa and 4th of July.

"Uh-MASON" gift

This year the teachers received this 'Uh-MASON" gift from their first graders.  I filled a mason jar mug with Hersey Hugs and Kisses and the generous gift card  (class contributions from the parents).  I attached the tag I made for the teachers and aides.  Thank you teachers for an "Uh-MASON" year!

Tape Resist Art

Drying Art
 This year dad will be receiving this tape resist art project done by our 2 year old.  Using painters tape, I spelled out "DAD" and my son painted over it with his hands. When it dried, he pulled off the tape to reveal the special word.  My seven year old had fun creating his own tape resist project.

Homemade Silly Putty

To make this, each child got a couple spoonfuls of corn starch and liquid dish soap.  They kept mixing with their hands until they got the right consistency. If too runny, add more corn starch.  If too dry, add more dish soap.  You can't go wrong with these two ingredients.
