Encourage your little one to tap into their creativity and artistic freedom with this Painter’s Tape & Crayola Paint Name Art project!
It’s been over a year since our first visit to the Young At Art Museum here in South Florida. Last week was
intense stressful around here. Between working, preparing for a birthday party, and Valentine school festivities I was extremely exhausted by the time Sunday arrived. I was more than ready to relax and unwind a bit since I was off of work Monday & Tuesday. Typically when I am off during the week I take advantage of having free time to myself because Toodie is in school until the afternoon and it gives me a chance to get things done without any distractions. Since I was able to get some rest and run a few errands yesterday I thought it would be nice to spend a day at the museum before heading back to reality on Wednesday. Toodie has been asking me to take her to visit the Young At Art Museum again for a while now & this seemed to be the perfect time to do so. Yes, I let her play hooky from school today.. shhhhh!
Looking for an easy Summer time craft to do with your toddler? Sometimes all you need is a few bottles of finger paint, colored construction paper, and a simple white poster board. A paintbrush isn’t necessary for this project but you may need it to create your tree stem. Your little one’s fingers will do most of the work! It may get a bit messy but I guarantee this will be a ton of fun and also a great way for them to create a picture based on their creativity.
You can join in by following the crayons on their adventure! In the process you will LEARN more about each color and enter to WIN a trip for 4 to celebrate their birthday and the Grand Opening of the all new Crayola Experience this coming May, 2013! What child wouldn’t LOVE this?! I grew up with Crayola and would absolutely love to attend this event as an adult. Can you imagine how thrilled your little one would be too?!
The new Crayola Experience features four floors of new interactive exhibits and one-of-a-kind attractions that will bring the magic of color and your child’s creativity to life! The winner will be among the first to experience the fun, along with a three- night, all-expenses paid stay. It’s an experience your kids will never forget – and neither will you!

I came across these “No Mess” Squeeze N Brush Paint Brushes at the store this weekend. It only took me half a second to grab them and toss them in the cart once I read the “No Mess” and “Washable” tag line! Toodie loves to paint so I have been trying to find unique crafting products to give her something different to do. I thought that these were worth giving a try.
This pack came with five bright colored neon paint tubes. Green, Pink, Yellow, Orange, and Blue were all included. On the back of the package they even tell you that blending the paint for more colors is possible. Tangerine, Turquoise, and Fuchsia can also be made!
The Squeeze N Brush Paint Brushes save you from the mess, dirty water, and clean up that you would normally have with regular paint. The paint is already in the tube with a soft flexible brush on the end, making painting effortless. All you have to do is squeeze and brush on to your paper. The paint comes out very smooth and is also washable. With it’s thick bristles you can create pictures and also blend the colors together without them getting muddy.
I really liked the concept of the Squeeze N Brush paint brushes. It makes the simple act of painting fun without the daunting task of cleaning up afterwards. Another thing that stuck out to me when I purchased them were the colors. The variety of neon colors was a nice change from the typical color pallet you see offered in most paint sets. Toodie seemed to like them a lot and had no problem squeezing out the paint on her own with her tiny hands. When we we’re finished all we had to do was cap the tubes and put them away. No cleaning off dirty brushes or wiping up spilled paint. I am eager to see if they make these in other colors!
