Kids Craft: Monster Art Canvas Paint Project
A few years ago, The Boy (as I refer to him) received a Dr. Seuss room room makeover which he loved for about a year until he decided he wasn't really a baby anymore. Instead, he fell in love with monster trucks, legos, pirates, and all the big boy toys you can imagine. So it was not really a surprise when he wanted his bedroom decorated with anything but our beloved Dr. Seuss room.
Since we aren't ready for a complete bedroom overhaul, we've been taking down the Dr. Seuss accents and replacing them with more "big boy" accents, like art that The Boy created!
I was recently given the opportunity by Plaid to create and share a kid's craft and I thought this would be the perfect time to let The Boy express his creativity and help decorate his bedroom at the same time!
Plaid sent me a great box full of paint supplies.
Using my plaid paints, I painted three of them, one red, one blue, and one yellow. The only reason I painted them myself was because I wanted to make sure they were fully covered and solid. We live in a rental and his walls are white so I really wanted these to pop off the wall. However, you can always let your kid(s) paint the canvases on their own!
Once they were dry, I asked him to paint a monster on each canvas. He's been drawing monsters a lot lately when he's playing, so I knew he would enjoy painting a monster.
Once they were dry, we displayed them on the walls in his room.
Aren't they just the perfect pop of color? The Boy could not be more proud of his artwork in his room. And let me tell you, that makes this mama very happy!
What craft projects do you enjoy working on with your kids?
