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.

A little saying I picked up from the latest issue of @maplemagazinecanada that came in my Maple Box. The whole concept of their magazine and the Maple Box is to create comfort and coziness along with encouraging a healthier well-being for yourself (I like it!). I discovered new-to-me products within their quarterly box (take a look at my IG stories for a closer look inside) and love the attention to detail and quality organic products. #ad #themaplebox #maplemagazine
  • A selfie success I’d say. 🐶
  • When I started working out around the house more Ezra asked me, “Why are you doing those exercises all the time now?” and I responded by saying, “Because I want to be stronger.” That’s what inspired this photo and my “strong” pose.

For the next couple of months, I have partnered with @planetfitnessca and will be sharing more about what I am doing to take care of myself and bring those home workouts to the gym while I check out their Abbotsford location.

P.S. did you know that a PF Black Card membership allows you to bring a friend for a free workout every time you go in?? Comment below if you want to be
my friend and join me! #seriously

  • Don’t be fooled by our matching outfits and their cute faces, the majority of my photos looked like photo two and three.
  • We’ve been under the weather (mainly the kids 🤒 ) for what seems like forrrreverrrr!! We bundled up anyways and took in some of this ❄️ snow and even though it’s cold AF and our 🐕 puppy might be the biggest wimp of all it was definitely worth it.
  • I like pink drinks and I can not lie. ⠀

I also love my SodaStream! I am so excited to share that I'll be creating more deliciousness with @sodastreamcanada this year as they asked me to join their #streamteam for the second year. Last year I learnt so much about how they are changing the world with bubbles, reducing waste and turning so many pop drinkers into sparkling water lovers. Best part is, you use tap water from your home so whenever you want to make bubbly water (as my kids say) it's so easy! #partner⠀
