Crafting with your kids is a wonderful way to helping you bond with your children by letting them be apart of your crafting world (they love to do what you do), teach them about colors, let them explore their creative side and be inventive, and to let them have the freedom to play with paints and mists!! We all love to be creative, especially kids!! Here are a few idea you can do with your little angels using Tattered Angels Mists and paints.
First we have Angel Erin and her daughter Catherine using Tattered Angels Glimmer mist at a water color to paint with. Just pour some of the mist out onto a plate and use a paint brush for the kids to paint with. Catherine is in love with pink, so she picked out Party Pink Glimmer mist to paint with on her mixed media paper doll she created.
Here is a video of Catherine making her paper doll.
Here is Dana Tatar doing a fun bokeh canvas with her girls Scarlett and Claire.

3. Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist: Bahama Blue, Black Cherry, Black Magic, Fully Purple, Marmalade, Patina, Riptide, Sea Glass, Sun Sisters, Trunk Bay, Turquoise Blue
1. Circle Punch
This simple and beautiful craft is as easy as misting tissue with various colors of Glimmer Mist, punching out the tissue into circles, placing them onto the canvas, letting them dry, then pulling off the circles to reveal an amazing work of art.

You can also use the Tattered Angels mists to create something for your children to play with. Here Angel Erin makes colored rice by misting rice in various colors of Glimmer and Chalkboard Mists but any of the Tattered Angels mists work great for this. The results are beautiful and brilliant colors of rice perfect for fine motor skills and tactile development with your kids. Have them sort colors, run them through their hands, place them in cups, play pretend, the ideas are endless. The paint does not rub off and the kids love the fun colors.
Here is a video on how to make the colored rice.
Yet another way to use Tattered Angels paints and mists is to help your children with their science fair projects. Sometimes you need a little paint or mist to help the project shine. Here is an example where Tattered Angels High Impact paints were used to help color these plaster eggs to make them look more prehistoric and transform them into dinosaur eggs for a science fair presentation. Even the young budding scientist Morgan got in and helped paint them into reality.
Here is a video of Morgan helping to make his dinosaur science egg project.
Kids come up with some of the most creative and amazing projects if just given the chance. When we let them have fun creating and getting involved with the process, they love it and they are so proud of their project when they are done. Even our little angels love Tattered Angels!!
