Kid Friendly Friday- Fork Painting

I can't even believe its Friday again ... another week gone by and I don't even have a clue of what I did this week, but more importantly another week of summer has past, and it is going quickly, I have SO MANY plans and crafts to do with Lu next week, so my Kid Friendly Friday may be bombarded with many things LOL.

We have been doing a letter exchange and if you read my blog than you know what I am talking about, if not look here, here, and here. Anyhow, I have been trying to get creative with the things we doing, because plain ole' painting on paper is getting boring, and when I set out the pain for Lu, I went to grab napkins for the mess, and low and behold were plastic forks *light in head flickered on* I never have let Lu paint with a fork, but why not right...
so here she is fork painting, she had 4 forks one for each color. She thought It was really cool.

Isn't that awsome?? You can paint with just about ANYTHING! no need to go to the store for things anymore, I can just shop for objects around my house!
We turned it into a small "cookobook" with some of Lu's favorite recipes, for the litttle boy she was writing the letter to, his mom and him participate EVERY week in our Kids in The Kitchen meme and Lu thought it would be cool to give a book of things he could make ALMOST ENTIRELY on his own!!
Check out some more really cool fun Kids stuff at I Blame my Mother.


  1. Hey - I can do this today. Love it!

  2. We have painted with feathers, toothbrushes, bath puffs, spaghetti, and string but I have never seen this before, great idea!

  3. This is neat! I need to think outside of the box more often :) Love the cookbook idea! Lu is so thoughtful!

  4. I love this and can't wait to try it with Emily!

  5. What a great cookbook idea! Emily loves to pretend like she has her own cooking show whenever she's in the kitchen. I don't know where she gets it from... we don't even get Food Network!
