How I not only survive but enjoy Mommyhood

I decided to make a St. Patrick’s Day art project with the girls today.  There are so many amazing ideas on Pinterest…I thought instead of just pinning things online, it was time to actually do them!

We painted using bell peppers and potatoes!  It was fun and not terribly difficult.

plates

cookie cutters

The peppers were easy…just cut it open and paint!  We used a sponge brush at first but it was much easier to slap it on with our fingers.

The potatoes were a bit more tricky, but still not too bad. First I sliced the potato long ways to create the biggest area to use.  Then I used a shamrock cookie cutter.  I pressed down pretty hard.  Then cut around the cookie cutter.  When I took the cookie cutter off, there was a perfect shamrock shape…NO artistic ability needed!  (My kind of crafting!)

My kids had fun with it.  I didn’t spend a fortune on supplies and they thought it was SO COOL to do something a little different than plain old paining.
