Fun Kid Craft: Googly Eyes Monogram

We’re back this week with another craft for kids using the Creative Play Kit! The kids had a blast making this one because it involved googly eyes. I have no idea what makes these little plastic pieces so entertaining but my kids go nuts for them. That’s what makes them great for creating fun bedroom décor that kids will love hanging on the wall. Even better is that this googly eyes monogram is super easy to make. Older kids will have no trouble and younger children will do great with a little guidance from mom.

Materials

  • Construction Paper
  • Colored Pencils
  • Googly Eyes
  • Glue Stick

 

Kids have blast making this googly eyes monogram! It is a great craft that creates fun bedroom décor kids will love hanging on the wall.

Step 1

Have each child choose a color of construction paper for the monogram.

Step 2

Next, draw each child’s first initial in block lettering in the center of the construction paper.

Tips:

  • Mom, you may want to do this part for kiddos.
  • Use a lighter colored pencil to draw your letters. I used white on the paper so that there isn’t an obvious outline on the artwork.

Step 3

Next, give each child the monogrammed construction paper, a glue stick, and googly eyes.

Step 4

Have kids begin gluing the eyes inside of the monogram starting with the largest sized eyes.

Tip:

  • Place the eyes at random over the monogram. You want them to be spread out.

Step 5

After the large eyes have been added begin filling in more of the monogram with the medium eyes.

It is that simple to create custom art for kids’ rooms. They will love making this googly eye monogram and love showing it to family and friends. I do recommend having each child choose one style of googly eyes for a more cohesive look (it will also preempt any arguments during creation). Too many different styles can make the monogram look messy. Luckily there are 4 different styles in the Creative Play Kit which makes sticking with one easy. If you haven’t checked it out yet, don’t forget about the awesome Kids Behavior System that we made last week. The kids love earning their M&M treats and I’m loving the calmer days. See you back here next week for another fun kid’s craft!

How to Turn Kids Artwork into Coaster Sets

Find out how to turn kids artwork into coaster sets and create a beautiful keepsake that family and friends will cherish! #ad

How is your summer going so far? We have been crafting up a storm and truly enjoying some unstructured days. If you read yesterday’s post then you already know that we are in full Father’s Day mode. Today’s tutorial continues the trend with another awesome DIY gift idea. Don’t worry we’re taking a break from tomorrow with a new glow-in-the-dark game. Until then, though, find out how to turn kids artwork into coaster sets with this easy tutorial. We worked out all of the kinks for you so that you and the kids can get it done without the ups and downs that we experienced.

When we started creating out coasters the plan was to have the kids draw directly on the coasters. That worked great for the youngest who mostly just scribbles anyway, but the middle one struggled with it. In fact, she got so frustrated that she scribbled out her frustration. You can check out her angry scribbles in the photo below. That frustration is what inspired me to transfer images she drew on paper to the wooden coasters, instead. Live and learn…

Materials

  • Unfinished Wooden Coasters
  • Blank Sheets of Paper – We used lined notebook paper
  • Pencils
  • Wood Burning Tool with Rounded Tip
  • Clear Engine Enamel Paint

Step 1

Fold a piece of paper into fourths and give it to your child along with a pencil. Let him or her know only to draw on the fourths. This will help make sure that the drawings fit on the coasters.

Step 2

Next, cut the fourths apart.

Step 4

Next carefully align the pictures over the coaster and trace over the drawing lines.

Tip:

  • Older kids can do this step on their own but I recommend mom doing this step for the little ones.

Step 5

Add each child’s first initial to the corresponding drawings on the coasters.

Step 9

Next, flip your coasters over and spray the back as well to fully seal them.

Don't throw out that leftover paint from your project! This gorgeous DIY sunset sailboat painting is made with excess paint and you can make one easily!

Gorgeous DIY Sunset Sailboat Painting

Do you mix your own colors for paint projects? I typically keep large tubes of the primary colors as well as black and white for all of my acrylic paint projects. It is awesome because it allows you to get the precise shade you want. Unfortunately it can also lead to an excess of paint at the end of the project. This recently happened with me and I couldn’t bear seeing such a large amount of paint wasted. So, I decided to pull out a large blank canvas and see what I could create to use up the rest of the paint. The result was this gorgeous DIY sunset sailboat painting. (Please note that in the materials section I have included the end color of paint needed. This is to make it easier for you if you don’t feel like mixing your own paint colors.)

Materials

 

Don't throw out that leftover paint from your project! This gorgeous DIY sunset sailboat painting is made with excess paint and you can make one easily!

Step 1

Spread orange paint on the top 2/3 of your canvas with a 2” paintbrush.

Tip:

  • Allow some of the white of the canvas to show through your brush strokes.

 

Step 2

One the bottom third of your canvas, brush on the teal paint.

Tip:

  • This should be thicker than your orange paint above with little-to-no white showing through.

Step 3

Start outlining your sailboat with navy paint by first painting the boat and then moving on to the first sail. See the picture above for reference.

Note:

  • Use your fine point brush for this part.

Step 4

Next, outline your second sail. Be sure to leave a gap between the 2 sails like you see in the picture.

Step 5

Once you have finished outlining your sailboat, fill it in with paint.

Step 6 (Optional)

My first coal on the sailboat was too light so I added a second coat of navy paint. If yours is looking too light as well, add a second coat to it.

Step 7

Add some white accents to your water by dipping your 2” inch brush in white paint and brushing the excess onto a scrap of paper before brushing over your water.

Step 8

Next, paint a light shadow of the boat on the water. See the picture above for reference.

 

Don't throw out that leftover paint from your project! This gorgeous DIY sunset sailboat painting is made with excess paint and you can make one easily!

Step 9

Once you are happy with the look of the shadows, darken them with your navy paint.

Step 10

Allow your painting to dry completely and enjoy!

Isn’t this so pretty? It’s a perfect example of the saying that necessity is the mother of all invention. This DIY sunset sailboat painting never would have come to be if there hadn’t been so much paint to be used up. The next time you find yourself getting ready to rinse all of that paint off of your palette, pause. Think if maybe there is a project begging to be made with it. Even if your project doesn’t turn out (which has totally happened to me before) you haven’t wasted any supplies making it. Plus the best part about canvases is that if you mess up you can paint over the whole thing and start over. That is definitely winning all around!
