I usually like activities that my two daughters can do together. It gives me pleasure to watch them spending time together. As they are 8(almost 9) and 3 years old, I should think about activities which should not be difficult for my younger daughter but should not be boring for my elder daughter.  They both loved creating their monoprinted mother’s day card!

6. Keep the card stock over the painted board and get the message printed on the card. The message will be printed backwards.

The best part is you can apply paint again and reprint using the same board. My daughters had a blast. As my preschooler is interested in writing, she was fascinated to write in the paint. A simple and fun activity!
