For Mother's Day I wanted to find a cute project to have the kids do for their Nana and Grandma. I came across a million handprint paper art activities, which were so cute - but I wanted something a little more permanent. I came across THIS IDEA from Setting for Four Blog. I knew this would be something that Connor could do and would come out super cute, since he had just started drawing people.
Here's the finished project:Setting for Four's Blog, but really - it was pretty easy!
First Connor drew his Grandma and Nana on a piece of thicker white construction paper.
He took his job VERY seriously!
Then, with him sitting there, I took the fabric marker, placed the towel over his picture, and traced over the parts I wanted on the tea towel.
I gave the drawing to my mom and Mr. Howard's mom to keep too - just because I thought it was fun to see how the towel really was a complete replica of his drawing.
The thing I loved most about this project, besides its simplicity, was the fact that you could do this with ANYTHING. You could do it as a keepsake for yourself; you could do it to make a more permanent copy of a drawing; you could do it for dads or moms, grandmas or grandpas, a teacher, or a friend. I will definitely be doing this again!
