We just started our Spring Break and the kids are already itching for something to do. Today's activity was fun and super inexpensive (I'm talking $1!!). While my son played downstairs, the girls and I created this fun Spring mural on a shower curtain. We had a good time painting it and now our bathroom has been spruced up with a touch of Spring.
Check it out...
And here's how our "canvas" started out...
That's right, we used a cheap shower curtain liner from the Dollar Store. ( I'm sure you could upgrade to a fabric one or a heavier weight one, but this worked great for us and we can afford to make new ones whenever we want!)
I just spread out an old sheet on the floor, spread out the shower curtain liner, and we got to work. We used a bunch of acrylic paints I had on hand and painted on a whole Spring scene ~ a tree, birds, butterflies, bumblebees, flowers, caterpillars and even a hummingbird! To personalize our mural, I painted on a "carved" heart with the kids' names on it.
Here's a few "close-ups" of the details.
Isn't it cheery? It really brightens up our bathroom and the kids love it (and I do too!). Every time my youngest daughter comes out of the bathroom she says, "That just makes me happy". At just $1, I know we'll be making more for each season and for different themes.
