Fun little activity for kids

My stepmom gave me some Family Fun magazines and I found this neat craft in them.

It is so easy - even an uncrafty mom like myself can do it.

Washable Tempera Paint
Freezer Gallon size plastic bag

Poor paint into plastic bag.  Lay plastic bag flat and squeeze out as much air as possible (without squeezing out the paint :).  Tape the end of the bag VERY WELL.  Lay the bag flat and write on it with your Q-tip.  When you want to erase it, just push the paint around and write on it again.

It is better to use the Q-tip just in case if you were to use your finger and your fingernail went through the bag then you might have quite a little mess on your hand.  I would also get the Ziplock brand freezer bag for this - not the cheaper bags.

Have fun!


  1. Oh,my. This looks scary to me, like an accident waiting to happen. (Spoken by a non-crafty old woman who is also a pessimist)

  2. This looks great! I'm going to try it and see how it works! Thanks for sharing!


I love comments!
