Pick Colors, Paint, and Design
One day, I was searching for a fitted indoor activity for my son on Pinterest. Then I ran into a great website called “Pickebums.com.” Her blog has so many excellent ideas and fun free printable for kids’ activities.
We printed out one of her printable called “People Play Dough Mats.” (picklebums.com) We were using it for decoration and having fun, then we came up with the other idea to make our own designer clothing!
What We Used
- Printable from Picklebums.com ‘People Play Dough Mats’
- Watercolor paper or any thicker paper
- Watercolor paint or any paint you like to use
- Googly eyes
- Buttons, feathers, yarns, ribbons, etc. for more decoration
First, I cut out the shape of items of clothing and accessories. Then my son painted freely with watercolor paints. I helped him one or two pieces, but he was intensely focused on painting. We waited for a while until everything was dried.
Then he made faces, and he played with clothing items. Finally, he decorated with Play-Doh and buttons, etc. So many possibilities! So fun!
We dedicated a long time to this fun activity on that day! I was so impressed all design came out so cool and stylish! I hope I can dress them all!
