First, the art club. Such a great idea for grandparents of artsy type kiddos. The idea is that you give them the plaque, then each month the artists prepare a new piece of art, which is sent to the recipients. This is a present that gives all year long AND helps clean off your refrigerator!!!
I got these two plaques from Wal-Mart for $3.97 each. I sanded them down, then gave one to little girl to paint and I painted one.
Sweet little guy started working on his art for grandma when he got up from his nap.
Nail the sawtooth picture hangers to the back and voila!! They are done. So cute. Mine is okay as well, but little girl's is awesome (sorry I can't seem to get it to go landscape like ALL the other pics so nicely complied)!!
The next craft I did w/o babies help was coasters. I got the idea from MOPS who in turn got it from here: http://thecottagehome.blogspot.com/2011/01/tile-coaster-tutorial.html. Here are how mine turned out. And no, don't adjust your monitors, that picture of Michael really is how it turned out. It makes me laugh every time I see it. Which is why I added it to his grandma's set. ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
Happy crafting y'all. And Merry CHRISTmas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
