  • Giving Garden Painting Party

    For the craft project for my granddaughters slightly delayed b'day party last Saturday, I cut 20 of the giving garden flowers (By Tom Kantos in the spring 2012 issue of SSWC) from 3/4 pine, sanded to 180 grit and edges rounded the edges with the mop sander. I put in about three hours total time. I provided the acrylic craft paints (from my stock); three packages of brushes and a package of divided styrofoam plates from the dollar store; and a large roll of paper towels. It kept all the kids busy, on and off, for better than two hours. My granddaughter did three of them since every time new kids showed up, she just had to show them how. Here are the results. Even some adults??? got in on the action.

        What a great project George, bet they are already wondering what you will make for them next year.
        Making memories that's what its all about. Love those Kodak moments.

            They really did have a ball painting them. Paint everywhere, on the floor, the table cloths, the flowers, themselves, the walls. Fortunately, my daughter has set up the garage as a play, craft room and so some paint splatters, don't matter. As for next year...???????

              Having three grandkids (1.5 to 5) my first sound was a groan and next thought was "where'd the paint end up"

              Looks like it worked out great. What a wonderful idea!

                One of our daughters does the same thing with our Grandkids. They really have fun and talk about it for at least one week...at that age there are so many new things in their lives every day

                  That certainly will be a challenge, Since the wood appears to be well preserved, it will interesting to identify the wood - cedar or locust ???

                  Betty, send me an email of what you want to order rather than the website. Better pricing on repackaged. Email at [email protected]...

                  I will need your advises to do that drawing (found on the web ), to make it in 3D , with cherry wood. It is a gift for my brother in law, for his messages of encouragement concerning the COVID. and since more than a year.

                  They say great minds think alike. I wanted to order the ones you sent me to try. I’ll be placing an order over the week-end for the #3 double skip and others. Bruce’s free tickets to Dover this week-end for the races may just cost him for leaving me here by myself for 3 days! And I got them in 2...
