"Lord" and "Master". *snicker* Yeah. Right.
So what are we doing for daddy? I wish we could do like the Sears commercial. Have you seen it? Big screen tvs, grills, tools, etc. but nope. Instead he will get getting some pottery that the kids made for him as well as a little project we worked on today!
With their best friend Ricky (who Kailani SWEARS she is going to marry) the three kiddos did the "Water Color Resist" silhouette that Mama King posted on her blog, 4 Crazy Kings. I have been itching to try it and today was a great day to do it! (For a list of supplies and full instructions please check out the 4 Crazy Kings blog.)
Here are some pictures of the kids as they created their silhouette with a brief description of what they did:Pump up the contrast; print; tape picture to a window; tape Contact paper on top (paper side out) and then trace an outline. (We let the kids trace it in pencil then the mommies redid it with Sharpies.) I thought it would be funny to take a a picture of the kids looking face to face with their profiles so I told them to "kiss" themselves. I meant for them to kiss themselves on the lips but Ricky and Momo decided to kiss their own cheeks.
Remove Contact paper from window and cut out profile. It is recommended to use an X-Acto knife but we did fine with a pair of very sharp scissors. We then peeled the paper off of the Contact paper and pressed the cut-out profile onto a some white heavy paper. The kids then painted over their pictures with watercolors:
If you notice some of the paint "bled" under the contact paper. This is because I didn't make sure that there was a tight enough seal along the edges of the profile before painting. *sigh*
I have to tell you, this was a really fun project. Mama King also did another similar project with Contact paper. Check it out! :)
