DIY First Birthday Greek Yogurt Painting

This post was written on my blogs original platform and originally dated in 2014.

A few weeks ago I came across a beautiful painting that Sarah, from Numpfer, created with her daughter.  She created a post about how they created their picture and the simple steps to do it on your own [see her post here].  I absolutely adored this idea, and what a great keepsake the painting would be for my daughter as her first piece of art, for her first birthday.  We also got to use the painting as part of her birthday party decor, it added the perfect touch.

To create our painting we decided to switch up our painting supplies from watercolour (what Sarah used) to a greek yogurt and food colouring mix. Sophie likes to put things in her mouth so this was a great alternative to not have to worry about her eating the paint and just let us have fun with it.

Materials:

1 blank canvas
painters tape
greek yogurt
food colouring
wet cloth

Tips & Tricks:

When painting with greek yogurt, you really don’t need to use very much, and only a drop or two of food colouring will do the trick.  If you have thick spots of the yogurt on the painting when it drys it will flake off, keep it to a thin layer.  When pealing off the painters tape, be sure to peel off carefully as to not rip the canvas.  I kept a wet cloth handy as my daughter does not stay in one place for too long and you want to wipe hands before they grab onto anything.  I washed her clothes right away to keep from staining and found everything came out in the wash with ease.

  • Printed off some magnetic photos from our trip to Mexico to put on the fridge. I love printing off photos and I think Evelyn is following suit, she helped pick out the pictures from my phone to print out on our @canoncanada PIXMA printer and then gazed into the receiving end of the printer as our pictures came out. Seeing her get all excited when each photo printed was the cherry on top. Head to the link in bio for more DIY ideas!

Whenever I share about our family off on another adventure I’m often asked about what it’s like travelling with three kids. Sometimes it will be comments like “brave mama” or something of the sort. Which I totally understand, it can seem so overwhelming to travel with kids. But I want to encourage you all to not hold back by how tired you might be ... or that you won’t be able to relax as much if your kids weren’t there. Travelling with your kids, seeing new places through their learning eyes is refreshing in itself. Tiring yes, but so so rewarding.
.
How do you feel about travelling with kids?
  • I made these for Mother’s Day and then decided to keep them
for myself. Ha!

Using my @canoncanada PIXMA Printer and
their restickable paper, I put together a quick and easy DIY that would make a perfect gift for someone.. or for yourself.
Personalized wine bottles!
