This activity was so much fun…it started out as potato stamping and turned into my little children turning into little green Leprechauns as you will soon find out.
I sliced the potato in half and used a knife to carve out the shapes. I let my daughter pick the theme and she asked for Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.
I filled one cup with yellow paint and the other with blue.
We talked about constellations and the Little Dipper.
This turned into a beautiful birthday card for Pap Pap
We wrote on it:
“Twinkle Twinkle Little Birthday Star”
Then this mommy made a huge mistake of running to the bathroom and came back into the kitchen to see this…
Someone thought it was a good idea to turn themselves GREEN!
It made some really great hand prints.
Look at her hands! She was running around the house saying she was the Grinch lol. I was seriously freaked out when I saw these. The paint dried so fast (thank goodness. or I would have put down the camera). Now when I ask her what colors make green, she knows and answers with a huge smile.
Needless to say, this turned into an early morning bath.
All I can say is they had fun 🙂
