Art & Craft with Lala

I don’t cook often. Most of the time Darling will tapau for us. The other day, he tapau-ed some lala(s) for me. I love lala, in fact, I love seafood. Gimme anything, I’ll eat them! :P

So after eating the lala(s), what do I do with the empty shells? So happen that we were heading to my work place that time so I took the empty shells and wrapped them in some old paper. Brought them to my work room and give them a thorough rinsing.

I placed them on the floor by the window to dry. Next, I mix some paint with PVA glue so that Ethan can start painting :D

He painted the first shell blue.

And then yellow.

Next is pink. He left the last shell untouched! @[email protected]

I cut a green construction paper and let him paste onto a blue paper.

Then we did some thumb printing so that we can have some colourful flowers.

Lastly he pasted the ‘lala butterflies’ and there..

A beautiful LALA artwork!  Have a great weekend peeps! :D
