DIY Kid-Friendly Valentine’s Day Craft
I wanted to find a DIY kid friendly Valentine’s Day craft reusing something that we had in the house. I had no idea what to use or what to make so I was just standing in my kitchen looking around and out of the corner of my eye, I found them. I bought 3 containers of Planters Peanuts, Dry-Roasted/Honey Roasted, 16 Ounce to make a peanut cluster (I’ll share that recipe another time cause it was that good!) and all three were just sitting there waiting to make their way into the recycling bin.
With the kids, we got all our empty and clean containers, our paints, paint brushes, sponges and little fingers ready for painting. We started with a paint brush but soon found out that dabbing it with a sponge was a lot easier, faster and cleaner. My oldest wanted to do an ombre look so she did one and I did the other. My youngest decided to make a marble looking one so she just went to town with the sponging, and it worked! I was surprised with how fast the paint dried. I then took the washi tape and put it around the area that the cap goes on to cover that up. I had a slight problem with getting the tape to stick on there so I brought out the good old glue gun and just put a thin layer of glue where the tape goes and it was good to go. To weigh it down, I grabbed a couple river rocks from the backyard and dropped them in so they wouldn’t tip over when I put the flowers in it.
