Elmer’s Painters Paint Markers + Craft with Kids #ExpressYourself
I was recently introduced to Elmer’s Painters Paint Markers and was excited to create a craft with my three boys using the paint markers. My boys are so creative and I knew they would have fun creating their own shirt and drawing their own pictures to wear around town. In this campaign, each blogger chose the medium with which she/he wanted to use the markers on. I chose fabric. Originally, I wanted to decorate aprons, but had some difficulty finding them for my kids. So, I went with the next best thing for fabric – shirts.
I purchased the shirts and markers at my local Walmart and let my kids go to town designing their own shirts. They had fun coming up with their own unique patterns and pictures and they were very excited to tell me what they created. When using the Elmer’s Painters Paint Markers with kids, be sure to supervise them. The paint markers are a bit tricky to open up in the beginning, as each marker is individually wrapped. But with some patience and a pair of scissors, you’ll get them open in no time. Be sure to shake the marker with the lid on, to avoid splattering ink on shirts or tables. In order to get the marker to really soak up the ink, press the tip on a piece of paper or extra piece of fabric, until the tip is filled with the colored ink.
Elmer’s Painters Paint Markers are available in the craft section at Walmart. They are available in a variety of colors and retail for $1.97 for each individual marker. I decided to purchase the 5 pack in fine tip, which included brown, orange, pink, yellow, and purple. If I bought them again, I would be sure to include blue and green, as those are colors my boys kept asking to use.
