Kid-Friendly Friday!

Happy Friday! I hope everyone had a great week so far and has some great plans for the weekend. We're going to be doing some furniture shopping, so we can *hopefully* have a couch! So far, we've been sitting on big floor cushions, which have been fine for us, but I'm not sure everyone else will appreciate them...

We'd also like to say Happy Anniversary to our brother and sister-in-law! August is a pretty busy month for anniversaries in our family, just like May is a busy birthday month. Everyone's anniversaries are this month.

Anyway, we have another Kid-Friendly project to share today: Olympic Ring Prints.This is a really easy one, for both parents and kids, especially the cleanup!

Paint- red, yellow, green, blue and black
Cardboard paper towel roll (and some paper towels for cleanup)
White paper
Something to put paints into
Paintbrush- optional

Step One:
Cut roll into 5 small pieces (or 3 and use each end for a color) to use as your circle.

Step Two:
Squirt the paint onto holder. Use the edge of the cardboard as your stamp. Stamp away!

First three colors

I made three different "prints." On the first one, I went for it and covered the page. On the second, I made five of each color, which you can see the different colors much better on. And on the last one, I made the Olympic rings in the middle (I hope I don't get in trouble for copyright infringement), and then went to town around it. The nice thing about this project is that kids can get a little messy, but it cleans up really easily when you just gather up everything and throw it away! As for those little hands, well, nothing works like soap and water!!

Thanks for stopping by! Come back tomorrow for some great themed cupcakes!
