The best things about Mother's and Father's Day, are the precious drawings and sweet notes from the little ones. Dads have it easy because kids are in school over Mother's Day...so the teachers take care of all that! With Father's Day during the Summer, the kids and I were on our own to create something for Daddy.
Mr. Sugarplum loves the kid's art, and most of it ends up taped to the walls of his office. So we decided to paint something sturdier that we could display at home.
Most of the time, the kids just paint whatever they want, but since we wanted to hang these together, we all stuck with a similar theme. I cut hearts out of contact paper, and sealed them on the center of a canvas.
Then they each covered the canvas with their own abstract art, using acrylic craft paint.
Once it was dry, we peeled the contact paper off to reveal clean hearts in the center.
We hung them in the Mudroom using Command strips.
Since it's the back hall, leading to the garage, it's the perfect spot to display the kid's art. They add so much color and personality to the space, and Dad loves being greeted by them everyday!
On the other wall, we hung the giraffe art they created at this party. I love how it accidentally tied in with the green door.
Have you tried your hand at painting? I'm not artistic, so it felt uncomfortable. But I did enjoy watching the kids get creative. Are you getting crafty for Father's Day this year?
