|materials we used: paper, manager silhouettes (via these template),|
glitter, painters tape, sponges, tempra paint.
|1) tape circles on the back of the silhouettes|
|2) press silhouettes down in desired locations|
|3) cover silhouettes and rest of paper with paint|
|*it's very important to paint with a dabbing|
motion or the paint will seep under your silhouettes
|4) sprinkle glitter on top of wet paint|
|5) wait for paint to dry and peel off silhouettes|
|big buddy's finished manger|
|mini man's finished "manger" - he decided joseph was batman and|
mary and baby jesus followed suit
If we were to do the project over again I would start the boys off with a little less paint. They ended up sponging on a lot so the pictures took a while to dry and some paint did end up seeping under the silhouettes. The boys had a lot of fun though and daddy was impressed, so I couldn't be happier.
