Each year I try to do a handmade gift and a store bought gift for my husband’s Father’s Day gift. I think it’s fun to get the kids involved and they’re only 2 and 4 so earning money is pretty much not an option. This was a fun one for the kids because they got to paint!
Supplies listed below may include affiliate links to the products.
- Silhouette Cameo and 651 vinyl (I tried 631 but it doesn’t stick well to the canvas so don’t do that. The 651 sticks *just* well enough that it will do the trick but still be easy to remove.
- Canvas or panels. I used a 16×20 canvas that I’d received free to review on Amazon.
- Paints and paintbrushes
- The Silhouette design, available to subscribers.
Once I placed my silhouettes, I let the kids paint the whole canvas. If you don’t want to do the lettering as a stencil like I did, you could also adhere the letters to the canvas here so the kids could paint over that too.
Pro tip: Restrict how many colors your children have access to when painting. If you still with a few colors then you won’t end up with a hot mess. I gave mine a couple of blues, a white, and two greens I think. We also had a paint brush for each color to keep them separate (as much as possible).
