Handprint Fall Tree Painting

I made this a few years ago with my son when he was a baby.  He loved to do hand-print paintings with me.  This Handprint Fall Tree Painting was a big favourite and I love pulling it out to put on my wall each Fall.

 

Supplies needed:

  • Canvas to paint (I buy mine from Dollarama), make sure it is large enough to fit however many arms/hands you are doing.   I was doing two kids so this one was perfect for me.
  • Acrylic Paint: blue, green, brown, red, yellow, orange, and white.
  • Piece of a sponge
  • Paint Brushes
  • Sponge letters (again from Dollarama)
  • Ensure you are close to a sink or bucket of water with lots of soap for cleaning.

Method:

Step 1 – The background

  • I started off painting the canvas to look like the outside.  I squirted some blue dots sporadically around the top 3/4 with a few white spots in between.  The bottom 1/4 I put dots of green.
  • I moistened my sponge then squeezed out most of the water.
  • Using the sponge I lightly brushed it back and forth covering the whole top section making sure to get the sides of the canvas too.
  • Turn the sponge over to a fresh side and do the green, covering the bottom and sides as well.
  • I took another clean side and lightly melded the colours together so the canvas was completely covered.
  • Let that dry while you set up.

Step 2 – The tree

  • Toddlers/babies are MESSY with paint no matter how careful you are, make sure none of you are wearing clothes you don’t want ruined.  Prep your clean up area and put a towel down.
  • Take their arm and starting at the elbow paint it brown all the way up to their hand making sure to cover their hands too.
  • Lightly take their arm by the elbow and press down from the elbow to the hands firmly.
  • CLEAN THEM QUICKLY BEFORE THEY TOUCH SOMETHING!
  • Do any remaining kids.

    Step 3 – The leaves

  • Let it dry while you prep for the leaves, get a plate/lid/etc. and squirt a little red, yellow, and orange paint in it.
  • Carefully take child’s finger and dip in the colours one at a time and scatter around the finger portion of the “tree” to represent the leaves.  No need to rinse hand in between colours and if they go rogue and paint elsewhere that’s ok, it’s a falling or blown leaf.
  • Repeat with any other children.

Step 4 – The words

  • Choose what colour you want to write your letters with.  I chose silver.
  • Dampen your sponge and dip in your colour, blot it on the lid/plate a few times then carefully spell out F A L L one at a time repeating the previous steps with each letter.  You could change it up and write Autumn, or Mabon, or any other word you wish.
  • Let it all dry.

You did it!  An adorable keepsake to give to grandparents, aunt’s and uncle’s or add to your growing stack of adorable hand and footprint canvases that you are making.

What is your favourite messy craft to do with your little ones?

Fall ideas to Celebrate Mabon with your Family

Fall ideas to Celebrate Mabon with your Family - Come get ideas on activities, foods, crafts and more to do with your family of all ages.

It is starting to feel like Fall!  It’s been 11 degrees here at night, the leaves are starting to fall.  The Canadian Geese are starting to fly south.  That means it’s time for Fall ideas to Celebrate Mabon with your Family.  This is my FAVOURITE season!  Pumpkin and apple everything time!  Crisp weather, an excuse to wear my favourite sweaters and scarves.  Pumpkin and apple picking.  So much to do and celebrate the Autumn Equinox with my family.

See below for Fall ideas to Celebrate Mabon with your Family including  activities, crafts & recipe ideas.

Fall ideas to Celebrate Mabon with your Family - Come get ideas on activities, foods, crafts and more to do with your family of all ages.

Mabon Origins

Mabon has been called the Pagan Thanksgiving by some traditions.  It is the time of year where we celebrate the second harvest festival, the changing of the seasons, and the coming of winter.

Mabon Story

A very common story to be read around this time of year is that of Persephone, Hades, & Demeter. Persephone was kidnapped and taken into the underworld by Hades (Lord of the Underworld), her mother Demeter (Goddess of Harvest & Agriculture) refused to let anything grow until her daughter was returned to her.  Zeus tried to negotiate Persephone’s return but alas, Persephone had already eaten six pomegranate seeds (another reason to NEVER eat the food offered to you by the fae or in another world!  You may get stuck there!).  So Zeus bargained that Persephone could come to the earth at Spring time, when Demeter is so happy all the plants bloom and thrive.  Then at the Autumn Equinox she returns to the underworld and the flowers and plants die until her return in the Spring.

Other similar holidays around this time:

Mabon is also similar to an ancient Greek festival in the Fall called the Eleusinian Mysteries, also based on the story of Persephone.  Harvest Home/ Harvest Festival, Octoberfest, Thanksgiving, Rosh Hashanah,  and Michaelmas are also holiday’s celebrated by different cultures and traditions around the world similar to this time.  This is also a common time of year for fairs to celebrate the end of summer and harvest of Fall as well.

Fall ideas to Celebrate Mabon with your Family - Come get ideas on activities, foods, crafts and more to do with your family of all ages.

Ideas to celebrate Mabon with your Family:

  • Prepare for Winter, start stocking up on supplies, getting warmer clothes and prepping the house and yard for the end of the year

Apple Related Book Crafts

This month for the monthly crafting book club we are doing Apple Related Book Crafts.  With Fall coming it is time to get our apple on!!  If you haven’t heard of the Monthly Crafting Book Club we are a group of bloggers who get together each month and focus on a book to promote for Children’s literacy.  Then we create a craft to go along with the book to read with the kids.  My children look forward to this each month.  They love to read stories, we visit the library each week in the summer and get 20 books to read together with the summer reading program.  It has been a great way to encourage my children to read as many books as possible this summer.

 

Apple Washi Tape Craft

This was a really fun craft that my daughter especially enjoyed.  Something about playing with tape really appeals to kids.  This was easy to do and I was happy with how much they still looked like an apple at the end of the craft.

Materials Needed:

  • Washi tape in colours to reflect apples (we used red, silver, and gold).
  • Construction paper to put the apple on.
  • Scissors for the adult to trim into an apple shape.
  • Brown pompoms for the stem.
  • Green buttons for the stem.
  • Glue gun & glue

How to create it:

  • Draw a rough circle/apple shape on construction paper.
  • Give your children pieces of washi tape cut to roughly the shape of the apple length.
  • Let them decorate it however they think an apple should look.
  • After they finish it you can cut it out and trim it to look like what you think an apple should look like.
  • Let the kids help you glue on the brown pompoms to look like an apple stem.
  • Then they can help you arrange the green buttons in a leaf shape.

Painted Apple Craft

I used to love making hand print crafts with my kids so couldn’t wait to try out painting with them.  My son had just woken up from nap and wasn’t feeling his best so it was not the most successful, but he perked up soon enough and enjoyed himself.  I hit up the Dollarama for all my supplies, no need to spend a lot, you may even have most of it on hand already.

Materials Needed:

  • Red paint
  • small canvas
  • paint brushes
  • green buttons
  • brown pom poms
  • glue gun

 

How to create it:

  • I drew a red circle/apple shape and had my kids help me paint it in.
  • Once it dried they chose out green buttons to shape like a leaf on the apple.
  • Lastly they helped me pick out brown pompoms to make the stem.

 

We borrowed every library book we could find on apples and read them together.  It was a lot of fun!  A very successful Apple themed craft session.

My Top 7 Summer Must Have’s

With summertime I am out and about so much! These are My Top 7 Summer Must Have’s.  I like products I can use while on the go with my kids and a night out.  I need things that are helpful and easy.  There is not a lot of time to focus on stuff that takes a long time, so it has to be easy to use while chasing after my two and four year old.  These products make my summer easier and also make me feel awesome at the same time.

 

My Top 7 Summer Must Haves - I am on the go all summer long with my kids. These are my favourite products for summer to make my life easier & help me feel awesome.

 

My Top Summer Must Have’s

 

1. Large Utility Tote & Cool Clip Thermal

These items are essential for me.  A Large Utility Tote that holds up to 50 lbs and is easy to pop things in and out while running errands, going for play dates or to the park.  I use mine for groceries and library runs, super easy to carry things around easily while juggling my kids.  I use my cool clip thermal a few times a week, it is great for packing small snacks for the park or while running errands.  Mine usually has cheese strings, an ice pack, diet Pepsi, and sandwiches.  Easy, healthy snacks even while on the go.

 

2. Sunscreen Face Stick

I may just be lazy, or just that I don’t like the feel of sunscreen on my face.  But I LOVE these Sunscreen Sticks!  Super easy to apply to your face, and I even use it on my kids as they act like I am trying to water board them when I apply sunscreen to their faces.  At least this I can apply in seconds and they stay still for.

 

3. Silver Icing

I have a few friends who recently became stylists with Silver Icing and I am hooked!  The clothes are great while I am out and about with my kids.  Granted these clothes are the first non-maternity, non-breastfeeding clothing that I have worn in about five years.  I may be biased!  But seriously moms, find a consultant near you (or check out the link above for mine) and feel awesome while chasing your kids during the day.  Then look great for date night at night too!

 

4.  Jamberry Nail Wraps

I am still so in love with these nails!   I use my Jamberry nail wraps for my toes.  I always have them on my toes for a cute pedicure.  Who has time to worry about their nails??  I put these on my toes and forget about them for a few months (except when I look down and think about how cute my toes are).  It’s a great activity to do with my four-year-old daughter too.  She loves them so much and is always excited to get her nails done.

 

5. Bootay Bag

Totally biased as I LOVE getting surprises in the mail.  I am totally in love with Bootay Bag.  Getting a nice little package with new pretty panties in the mail makes me feel great.  Pair that with my Jam nails and Silver Icing clothes and I am ready for a night out with my hubby!  Seriously, two pairs of adorable panties right to your mailbox.  Who wouldn’t love that??  Guys, it’s a great gift for the lovely lady in your life!

 

6. My Happy Planner

I am still so addicted to my planner.  I need a large planner with different slots to keep track of my home/mom/family life, blog posts, and my own business too.  This lets me keep it all together, and a spot to add my notes, like reminding me to do yoga and walk three times a week.  I LOVE my planner so much!!  But I also love how close it is to scrapbooking, I love washi tape, and I also love stickers, what’s not to love!

 

7. Knitting

Or other on-the-go craft.  I love bringing my knitting with me to the park, in the backyard, meetings, anywhere.  Sitting and watching the kids is so easy while knitting, in fact, most moms are on their phones (and no I am NOT judging I do it too, only time to check your e-mail, log your food for the day, check in with your partner for dinner, grocery shop, or just relax and play candy crush) so while knitting I actually pay MORE attention as I am watching them the whole time while my hands are busy.

 

My Top 7 Summer Must Haves - I am on the go all summer long with my kids. These are my favourite products for summer to make my life easier & help me feel awesome.

DIY Duct Tape Pencil Case

DIY Duct Tape Pencil Case - Make this DIY Duct Tape Pencil Case with your kids and be all set for back to school. July edition of the Monthly Crafting Book Club.

This month for the Monthly Crafting Book Club we are focusing on Back To School Books & corresponding crafts.  I decided to do a general back to school craft and do a pencil case. Easy for a child to help make as well.  We picked some fabric at Walmart and grabbed some duct tape so we could make a fun craft.

Purple Pencil Case

I saw a bunch of different types of DIY pencil cases and decided to give it a go.  I was a big fan of duct tape in high school and made a bunch of things from it.  Now it comes in fun colours and there are so many more options.

DIY No-Sew Duct Tape Pencil Case - Make this DIY Duct Tape Pencil Case with your kids and be all set for back to school. July edition of the Monthly Crafting Book Club.

This is a super easy craft to make and you don’t even have to sew it!

Follow Raising Fairies and Knights’s board Children’s Literacy on Pinterest.

 

Materials Needed:

DSC_0062

  • Material
  • Duct tape
  • Zipper
  • Glue gun
  • Ribbon and other embellishments

 

How to Assemble:

Have fun with your material and duct tape and pick something you enjoy.  I bought the pre-cut material at Wal-Mart but still found it needed a trim.  Trim your material to the desired height, made sure that the width is the size of the zipper.

pencil case step 1

Put your material, print side down, on a hard surface and cover in strips of duct tape.  Then flip it over and trim the access duct tape.   Fold it in half and press a little along the middle to make it stick.

pencil case step 12

Use a glue gun to attach your zipper to one side.  Be careful not to get any glue on the zipper (I did and it makes it hard to open, oops! But making it extra toddler-proof).  Then fold both sides into the middle and glue the other side, go slowly as the glue dries fast.

pencil case step 123

Turn it inside out and use the glue gun to glue the sides.  Turn it outside again and voila, you have your case!  Now decorate with ribbons and whatever else!
