"What a timely contest. Just a couple of weeks ago, I got up super early with my several-weeks-old daughter and I helped her to fistpaint. Not fingerpaint, but fistpaint. See, newborns have a hard time keeping their hands splayed. For her to paint what would eventually become the front of our baby shower thank-you cards, I had to paint her fist with various coloured goops of fingerpaint and then let her mash her fist into the cardstock. It was great fun and I think we’ll try it again soon.
And yes, we used non-toxic, baby-friendly paint. "Sounds like fun, Tara! (Keep an eye on your inbox for an email from me.) I hope that you enjoy your copy of Feathering the Nest: Tracy Hutson’s Earth-Friendly Guide to Decorating Your Baby’s Room. There were lots of other good ideas about kids' crafts on that post, so if you're searching for things to keep the kids occupied this summer, head over and take a look! And now, of course, it's on to weekly giveaway #8, and this is a good one. One lucky winner will receive a copy of Creative Keepsakes: Joy of Scrapbooking (completely revised and expanded) by Lisa Bearnson, PLUS a selection of treats from Stampin' Up!
