Mermaids…

Brianna and the neighbor gal have amazing imaginations… they have an entire mermaid story, and many powers to go along with it!  Nothing better than kids’ using their imagination.  I saw someone pin a mermaid craft on the spoonful.com, so we decided to try it but of course wanted to add our own spin.

We used most the same items:  acrylic paint, peg clothespin, yarn, tacky glue and the tail template provided on their site.  For some reason Brianna thinks “the little mermaid, Ariel,” is not real, but others are, so she wanted to makes hers look magical. We used glitter craft foam, and colorful yarn.  The one thing you need to have, that we didn’t, is a PAINT MARKER/PEN!!! So wish I had one:( BOO!  But Brianna didn’t want to wait for another trip to the store.  Paint markers work best because they to not bleed like markers, and unless you are good with the paint brush, it’s not a big area for painting.. but we made due.

Happy weekend!
