This Mother's Day we decided to make Audrey's Nanna's and Great Nanna's bookmarks as they all love to read. I had been searching Pinterest for inspiration when I saw Amy from LittleONE Baby Magazine (on Instagram) making roses out of foot and hand prints. I loved the idea but was a little concerned as Audrey has only ever painted at school (I have been a little nervous about the idea of paint all over my house). I bought a little sample pot of children's paints and brushes and we ventured outside in the sun to paint... I don't know what I was so concerned about, not only did we have a delightful afternoon but Audrey walked away almost paint free! I think all the Nana's are going to absolutely love their heartfelt Mother's Day gift. Although the roses are not the real deal and they only cost us a few dollars to make they will last a lifetime, just like Audrey's love for the special women in her life.
PS: After our wonderful time crafting with paint I have decided it is time I invest in some quality painting supplies. I was wondering if anyone had suggestions on products you have found work well with your little one?
