It is fun to make crafts but even more so when make them with the kids.
I work in a dentist office and specialists offices bring in goodies and fun items as a thank you for our referrals. One such office brought in one of these faux gum ball dispensers. I fell in love and new my girls would too. I proceeded to call the office and find out where I could find the supplies in particular the glass bowls. What a surprise, the dollar store and even better it was the one close to my house. I stopped on my way home picked up three of bowls and then off to Home Depot for the rest.
When I told the girls that we were going to have a craft day with the kids and make gumball candy dishes. We decided on an evening. I brought out what spray paint colors I had and the girls did the same.
1- 4″ terracotta pot with base
1- glass bowl
1- 11/8″ wood ball knob
1- large wing nut
Black paint or 1″ black circle sticker
Epoxy or super glue
Miscellaneous spray paint
We spread out cardboard on the back lawn and with the help of all the grand kids we began. They are great critics. You missed a spot grandma. Tyler, 6, was especially excited to get this project all finished.
It was close to the 4th of July so I made a star stencil and sponged on some stars with white paint. I went shopping hoping to find some red, white and blue M & M’s but not luck. Instead I found these great Mega M& M’s. They were perfect.
With very little cost we had fun and spent time working together. We decided that these would make great neighbor or teacher gifts for Christmas.
Have your own craft day!
