Do-A-Dot Crosses

A couple of nights ago, I was looking for a quick and frugal craft to keep Lydia busy while I made dinner.  Since Easter's coming up so quickly, we decided we were going to do some Do-A-Dot art.  These crosses are a great way to focus on the season.  And you probably already have all the materials around your house.

We took some plain white cardstock and made a cross with two pieces of masking tape.  You really need cardstock to withstand the tape.  But just raid your scrapbook supply and you're good.

Then take out the Do-A-Dot markers and go at it.  I helped her see that she needed to go around the cross thoroughly and she took it from there.  After she finished, we let the paint dry before removing the tape.  The tape was mommy's project as I really had to take it slowly.

But didn't it come out so pretty?  Frugal and meaningful... now that's my kind of craft.  

What a great way to refocus on the season!
