Some weekends are so busy that on Monday morning all you can think about is the unfairness of not getting a weekend. This then leads to grumpiness.
You then remind yourself that being grumpy is not attractive and choose to get over it, because you're better than that and ultimately go out with a Seize the Day! type of attitude.
I urge you to do the same. We'll all feel better about it at the end of the day.
What I'm really trying to share is that I don't have any new content for you today, but I do have another Halloween craft for the kiddos from October 2010.
Spooky Black Glue Drawings!
It's been awhile since I've broken out the black glue. It's a no-brainer to make and the kids are always excited to use it. Everybody wins!
Black glue has endless possibilities. Let's call it your craft drawer's little black dress. Or not. Totally your call. BUT, it can be used with any different medium (crayon, markers, oil pastels, chalk, watercolors,...) or just by itself. It can be used first, then after drying can be added to. It can also be added to a finished project to add emphasis. Wait! There's more! When dry it acts as a relief that can be used for crayon rubbings.
Here's how we're going to use it today: Spooky Halloween drawings.
Make your black glue. No measuring, just squirt in some paint and shake, shake, shake, senora. Shake it all about.
Hand it over to your kids or if they're too little you can draw something for them.
Here's some of our finished glue drawings.
This time around we chose to use watercolors to add color to the dried pictures.
Below is the crayon rubbing from the dried pumpkin glue drawing.
There you go. Just one of the many ways to use black glue!
