Easter is fast approaching and we are having to stay home, what better way to pass time than painting something memorable and entertaining for your children at the same time. I will show you how to make cute butterflies on terra-cotta pots using your kid(s) feet and so much more. My son loves to get messy and this is a creative type of messy!
1. Place the tape in the pattern or design you like, leaving open space where the paint will go.
2. Paint all over the pot.
3. Once the paint starts to dry and is still a little bit tacky, start to remove the tape. You do not want to wait until the paint is dry before removing the paint - removing the tape while the paint is still slightly wet will give you better lines.
4. Spray with the clear spray paint to seal.
Once the pots are all dry they are ready to be used for plants. With these crafts you have beautiful memories that will last for years while also serving a purpose not just stashed away in a closet. I find this project very enjoyable for my kids. It also helps to keep their imagination running with ideas. It can be therapeutic for children as well as you, hearing your children's laughter.
