It wouldn't be a holiday at House of Burke without a little bit of tape resist art! It is our go-to for making fun baby/toddler art. I have a lot of tape resist in mind for the holidays, but I wanted to start with some pretty decorations to don our big window next to the Christmas tree. This craft is so simple, but so festive. It is appropriate for super little ones also!
What you will need:
Red Washable Paint
Yellow Washable Paint
Green Ribbon (or any holiday color of your choosing)
I took 3 pieces of white cardstock and used the masking tape to stripe the paper. Using the overlap of the tape, I taped it down for Kingston. We painted with yellow, red, and green. Yes, I realized after the fact that maybe that was a bit traffic light-ish, but I love it nonetheless. You could just stick with red and green or do a combination. Or you could totally switch it up and paint them all blue for a fun Hanukkah garland, orange and black for a Halloween garland, red and pink for Valentine's Day .. well, you get the idea. This project is VERY versatile!
When your little one is finished painting, let the painting dry completely.
Once the paint was dry, I carefully removed the masking tape. Then, I used the inside of the masking tape to trace a circular pattern which I then used to cut out as many ornaments as I could fit on the paper. We used smaller cardstock, so we could only get four per painting. If you used regular cardstock, you could make a much larger banner!
