I saw a neat idea on Pinterest (go figure) to make a keepsake for baby’s first birthday. On Pinterest they taped a one on the canvas and then splotched paint on it and let baby have it. I decided since I have a Cricut cutting machine I would cut out the word ‘one’ and then let Nora paint it. I think I am going to do one every year until Nora doesn’t find it fun anymore. Some I will do the number and others I will do the word as we did here. It will make a cute keepsake and collage wall for a playroom (someday).
Cory had to help her try it out first because she wasn’t too sure what it was. And since it was acrylic paint I wanted him to be there to make sure she didn’t try and taste it! Next painting session I am going to try edible paints.
Here is the finished product!
