Kid-Friendly Critters – Frog/Toad and Lizard

Hello, dear friends!

Lilian (The Leaf Studio) here…it’s my turn to post today!!!

Summer is officially here and so is Summer Break! What do you do when your kids are out of school?

I asked my kids if they wanted to paint and they said “yes”! So, they “helped” me with my project! =)

They chose Totem Lizard and Totem Frog/Toad to work with:

They started by painting the Totem Poppets pieces with white acrylic paint:

After it dried, they chose their own colors to paint (you can remove the pieces from the carrier before you paint, but I thought it would be easier for them…not to loose the smaller pieces):

My oldest son (6) decide to paint the Sun, sky, grass and a flower on his Totem Frog/Toad. He was also able to assemble (most of) his own Totem Poppet by himself, using Mini-Brads Assorted Greens. Using mini-brads, the Totem Poppets remain movable:

And…ready to play:

Here’s the finished Totem Frog/Toad:

And the finished Totem Lizard (I helped my youngest with the dots on the tail…but he painted the rest):

They were so happy that they could play with these movable Totem Poppets!

Supplies:
