To thank all of you for
and to celebrate my two year blogiversary,
I'm giving away some of our favorite things!
Here is what is included in the giveaway
suggestions on how to use the materials
Contact Paper and Tissue Squares
You can stick almost anything to contact paper,
tissue paper squares are our favorite for making collages.
When you're done using tissue paper squares
Canvas and Crayons
Give melted crayon art a go!
Have you already made melted crayon art?
Unflavored Gelatin and Food Coloring
I always keep unflavored gelatin in my art cupboard,
gelatin plastic is so easy to make, lasts a long time,
and can pretty much be made into any shape or color you'd like!
You can even make your own rainbow!
Watercolor Paper and Watercolors
We use watercolor paper for almost everything. It's perfect for all kinds of art!
We even cut the paper up into smaller rectangles for making notecards.
Setting out water and pan watercolors is easy and quick to do when my girls are in a hurry to paint,
they also travel nicely for impromptu painting at the park.
Coffee filters are amazing for tie dying!
We like to use food coloring on our coffee filters and cut them out like snowflakes
we've even taken advantage of how the coloring bleeds through the filter and made abstract art.
Marbling with shaving cream is so much fun but nothing beats the fun my girls had making shaving cream cupcakes.
We LOVE sidewalk chalk!
We use it for everything from tracing around each other to making hopscotch and mazes.
Our favorite way to use chalk is soaking wet.
We've also created with chalk dust, which was really neat.
Plastic Spray Bottles
We use spray bottles to make negative art by filling the bottles with half paint and half water.
You can also fill the bottles with water and spray on chalk boards, cement, watercolor paintings,
food coloring on coffee filters.
The possibilities are pretty much endless with spray bottles!
Here are some fun extras to keep in stock
glow in the dark glitter
We've never used Kool-Aid for art purposes but I know you can make sensory doughs with it and use it for painting and dying!
Here is all
