For the Family Fun Club my 6-year-old and I used it as a Homeschool Art Craft! We love to paint and come up with new things so when Aunt Manda emailed us this wonderful Family Craft project we just couldn’t pass it up! For the How to Make the Easy Easter Craft, check out the first Family Fun Club Craft post. Here is a look at how ours turned out!
It didn’t take very long for them to get dry and then it was time to paint. We were very excited to begin our painting. You can use a pencil to draw a design onto the bread before you paint if you wish. We did not, we just free-handed it and had tons of fun talking about what colors we were going to use next.
We now have three awesome works of art from dried out bread! One is a creative flower that my 6-year-old did (which is my favorite), then we have a sweet and colorful heart and yes we have a Patrick Star. Just guess which one is my 6 year olds favorite!
We carefully pulled the yarn through the already made holes and just used a pencil to tie them to. We then placed it onto our hanging planter that is next to our kitchen window. I just love looking at our cool creations every time that I walk into the kitchen. We can’t wait to show dad when he gets home from work. He almost ate one the other day, when they were out drying, he thought I made sugar cookies! I am so glad he didn’t pick one up and take a bite out of it, but at least now he can see what we did in art class today. 🙂
Did you join in and make the Easy Easter Craft for Family Fun Club week? How did yours turn out? Manda will be sharing the edible version after Easter. Then you can see how making it with edible paint for the birds looks!
