It’s always a special treat when I let the kids use Sharpie pens, and I think using them to decorate contact paper – which we then adhere to the walls of our home – is one of their all-time favorite activities! It’s like drawing on the walls, except you were able to draw on a nice flat table, and you aren’t in trouble for destroying Daddy’s paint job! Emma drew these adorable fish, and Lily wrote her first two letters:
I’m not sure what the rest of Lily’s picture is of, but she sure enjoyed drawing it!
Johnny’s drawing is very whimsical:
My boy loves faces!!!
I’ve blogged about this activity before – here, and here. As you can see from the photos, you can see the edges, but it’s quite faint. They would show less if you cut out a colored-in shape, such as the pink heart Emma drew me.
Do you have a fun way to decorate your children’s rooms?
