Over the weekend I was lucky to have my sister to visit. We butt heads all the time as we are very different. But for the first time this weekend we both knew this and were happy to have a few words to each other and then to move on. I am a big softy and she is a tough woman. Together we do just clash! She brought along her fiance and her step daughter. I thought it would be a lovely time for Keely to play with her cousin through some fun craft.
During the week I found these fun animal hands, temporary tattoos for talking hands. I bought a couple of packets and once they arrived I realised they are for adults and not kids. They are fine for kids with really big hands, but I am not sure if there are any little people with really big hands! Using my old creativeness I pulled out the paint brushes, some paint, the talking hands and I asked each of them which was their favourite.
Loreli chose the shark, but wanted it as a dolphin, and Keely chose the giraffe. I painted the shark on Loreli without the teeth to turn it into a dolphin. With each colour I asked them to sit and wait for it to dry. Being children's paints this time was very quick. I finished each animal off with the eyes and any darker colours that went on top of the base colour.
The little ones chose the zebra to be stuck on me and then we had fun with a little talking hand puppet show.
This craft is great. Even if you cannot draw very well you can still manage to pull this off. You can do so much more, make people, other animals, and use a few different elements from your craft boxes. Just make sure you use safe products on their skin that will wash off with some soap and water.
Enjoy making your talking hands!
I thought I should also let you know I have decided to take the week off blogging. I will be posting an image a day, but beyond that I am going to be doing a lot of work towards the website. This is the time that a lot of the summer stock will start to arrive, so I need to be on top of it. Plus the sale is going crazy!
I personally have also found my "thing." My thing is to write, and I have made a place to go and do this. It is a wonderful safe place to be and to completely be me. I have a voice, and it is nice to find my voice is through written and typed words.
See you all properly next week. I will still be here posting images each day, so you can still say hi! Take care!
