Since the trial sesson was quite successful (in terms of the durability of the color when placed outdoor and the mood that it creates), Mommy took a step further to create more art pieces using the rocks… Of course, some are also exported to Grandma / in-law’s garden… 🙂
Here comes all of the CNY themed paintings…
Some of them were treated to “home” studio photo session…
After the photo session, the rocks were “deployed” to their respective positions in our garden.. These are meant to last until next year (and many years ahead for those common CNY themed rocks)
It’s time to pass on the baton, from Monkey to Rooster… So Mommy has transformed the “wall of fame” to suit the theme of the year with the help of the boys…
Let’s start with the main actors…
Rooster a.k.a Chick @ Egglet – The boys helped in cutting and pasting.
Money Chicks – Didi’s thumb print coupled with Koko’s creativity to bring the chicks to live.
Rooster a.k.a Chick @ Egglet
Paper Plate Chicks – With Mommy’s help, the boys helped to cut and paste.
Milo Chicks – guided by the boy’s preschool teachers…
Lastly the Firecrackers & Oranges – Didi’s Palm and Thumb print (after much persuasion) on the leaves and oranges… Koko helped to draw the outline of the oranges, leaves and firecrackers… Mommy of course made all the finishing touches…
Chinese New Year is always the best time of the year (for the kids especially… ^_^).. and it is also a great opportunity to bring your creativity to the next level!!
This year Mommy decided to buy a pack of pebbles/stones/rocks (whatever you may call it..), which is usually used for gardening… So, before the start of this activity, the rocks were washed and dried.. Then Mommy would draw the pictures/lines for the boys to follow so that the end product would at least resemble something.. 🙂
Acrylic paint, paint brushes, recycled magazine sheets, and lastly (to make the coloring last)… clear silicone sealant… were used in this process..
So, here you go some pictures of the “artists” in action…
The end product displayed on the vase in our compound… these were the ones from the 1st trial….
And finally some for export (gifts for Grandparents.. ^_^)
Thanks for stopping by!
Just to share what we have done for the past Chinese New Year’s decoration (a bit too late though) we’ve done with my 2 boys, named HY and XY (5 and 3 years old respectively). Feel free to drop some comments 🙂
