In the childcare, we are finding ourselves heading more and more into a more natural program. What better way to promote that then with natural aesthetics! Every classroom deserve it’s own personalized sign!
What you need:
-A larger piece of bark (You can use any type of wood if you can’t find bark)
-A classroom full of painters
-a narrow drill bit/ drill
The DIY of it all:
1)Have the children paint the side of the wood you’ve chosen to be your front. I left out various colours and had each child who wanted to participate painted a small section.
2)After the children’s part is finished I painted on KINDIES in white paint for it to stand out.
3)….Again I wait for it to dry.
4)A simple coat of modpodge will protect this piece from flaking off but fair warning; I would dab a brush over it. I experienced some smearing.
5) Slowly and carefully drill two holes about 6-7 inches apart. ( Go slow since the wood can be thin, you might run into breakage)
6) Once you have the two holes drilled, thread some twin through them and do a single knot in both ends to make a loop for hanging.
