When weekends are ruined by rain and we have to stay in, we have to put on our crafty hats and get something going.
My daughter was in a very bad mood this morning and so I asked her if she would like to paint, only to get a resounding NO. Crayons? NO.
So I told her we could hang her painting on a frame and that she could hang it up where ever she wants. That got her interested.
I drew a house with a black pen on a white sheet of paper and let her do her work with watercolours.
Resulted in this
We then took a sheet of black construction paper and drew two lines on either side so that the above painting could be slipped in between them. We then made a slit along the two parallel lines drawn.
Using a piece of string and the slits already made, I fashioned a loop which can be used to hand the frame anywhere.
Then we slipped in the painting between the slits and viola , we have our quick Painting f=Frame ready.
My daughter was super excited with her frame and I am sure your child would be too. There is a lot to say about motivation via an opportunity to showcase. The best part is you can replace the painting with a new one any time.
