an activity for school-age:
Create an irresistible keepsake for Father's Day!

before you begin:
Gather canvases, paint in various colors, brushes and masking tape. Since children will be using multiple paints for their canvases, you'll want to prepare a space in advance with cleaning supplies on-hand.

activity goals:
Create a one-of-a-kind gift for dad using resist art.

This activity is not only a wonderful gift, but a great introduction to resist art.

let's get started

step 1
Firmly place masking tape in the form of the word DAD on the blank canvas.
step 2
Paint many colors over the canvas and tape, and then allow the paint to dry.
step 3
Once the paint has dried, remove the masking tape to reveal DAD.
