On May 19th, we had the pleasure of hosting a “Mommy & Me” Workshop for Mother’s Day. Alex was joined by three Mommy/Daughter duos, as well as her own daughter, Maddison.
They worked on painting terracotta flower pots, and got to fill them with potting soil and flowers after they dried. It was wonderful seeing how different each student’s project came out; some used handprints, some painted flowers and bright yellow suns, and some (the Littles in particular) channeled their inner Jackson Pollock! Every flower pot turned out beautiful in their own unique way.
This project was fun, easy, and a great way to spend some time with your favorite kiddos. The paint dried super fast, and since the terracotta is breathable and allows moisture to escape, there is no need to use wax to seal it. (Just let it dry overnight and wipe down with a slightly damp cloth the next day!)
Laughs, smiles, and of course snacks, were abundant in that workshop and we would love to do it again soon! We hope to see even more people the next time around, and can’t wait to show you all the different ways you can use this amazing paint in (and out) of your home!
