I have a love/hate relationship with holidays.
I LOVE them, truly – I love the family time and the fun and the extra sleep-in days :) but I don’t love the buying of stuff and the goody bags of candy from my daughters classmates (for easter. really??) and the idea that we have to create huge events surrounding these holidays instead of simply enjoying the time together.
This all gets more complicated when I throw in that I’m an elementary school art teacher… I basically craft for a living!
I was thinking about a project that I could do with 9 & 10-year-olds that could be simplified to also do with my 5-year-old over the long weekend. This is what I came up with.

Very colorful. I love it.

How wonderful that they were occupied for an hour and had such a cute craft at the end of the time. I love anything that gets kids away from electronics.

I was wondering how you were going to get the silhouette so neat, but I love that you put the cut-out over the mosaic. The colors are gorgeous too!

My kids would love this, such a fun and easy craft idea.

We usually go with non-candy treats but I agree with you on the buying of stuff. This is a cute craft!

Love the idea of this. You could use it for so many different seasonal activities.

this is, simply said, a beautiful piece of art!
How pretty! I bet it would be fun with just watercolors too (though your way is certainly the easier one!)
