So I have a slight addiction to art supplies. Currently I especially have a thing for stencils. I LOVE them. My kids mostly ignore my art supplies (they think their supplies are more fun…possible) but their interest was peaked by some bike stencils I picked up a short while back. I decided to go with it.
We took some cards they had previously painted and used black paint to make the images from the stencils (Q also insisted on trying out a flower and butterfly stencil).
We learned watercolour paints weren’t the best choice as they tended to bleed more under the stencil even if I tried to hold it down while they painted. Poster paints were much easier to work with and resulted in a clearer stencilled image.
These were definitely a hit and chances are, one might find its way to a home near you:)
