Everywhere I look on the blogosphere, everyone is doing these elaborate, gorgeous and amazing projects with their kids. And, I have to admit I start to feel a bit subpar when I see a mom making Disney character cake pops with her three-year-old or watercolor masterpieces with her two-year-old twins.
That said, I decided to get crafty.
Okay. Not really. My sister made me get crafty. She literally printed out instructions to a tissue paper craft and put ALL of the supplies in a bag and brought it to my house. So, I got crafty by default.
The gist of the craft is this: Take white paper. Take tissue paper. Let your kids tear the tissue into tiny pieces and cover the white paper. Then spray the tissue with water and the colors will bleed and create art.
One problem: It didn’t work.
So, there’s a slight chance I did it wrong (a.k.a. let my kids pile wet tissue onto the paper so it looked like mountains) but I swear… the tissue didn’t bleed at all. The paper below is still white as white can be. And all I have are a bunch of tissue paper mountains floating on drenched white paper. *sigh*
So, there you have it. My crafty masterpieces. Stupid cake pop moms. (Kidding!)
Question: Do you craft with your kids? Tell me about it so I can copy your idea (and screw it up.)
