Directions, Tips and Tricks
First, get that paint shirt on each kiddo (or leave them in their diaper if that is your style, but it might be a little cold!). My family likes to just use old tees that can be washed and reused.
Depending on the decor and furniture in your home, you may want to cover the table or floor with paper towels or newspapers to make clean-up easier on you.
Next, help your kids choose the colors they would like to paint with and squirt the paint on a paper plate.
We use painters tape to mark off any area of the canvas that you would like to stay as blank canvas. We marked off a heart shape.
Finally, let your kids go wild! They may enjoy using their fingers if they are still in the texture touchy feely stage, otherwise the paint brushes come out to play.
Peel off the painters tape, and let the canvases dry before attaching the gift tag to the back.
