A Cost Cutting Gift - The kids will be happy to help!

Ever look at some of the modern art people get paid for and think, good grief my 6 year old could do better then that! Well make it so! Its also a way to give heartfelt gifts at bankbook friendly prices.

Go to the dollar store and pick up the following:

-Bristol board
-Picture frames
-3-4 colours of acrylic paint
             tip*: You may want to pick colours that will match the decor of the "giftee"

This should cost you no more than 10$.

Now spend a nice Saturday or Sunday painting with the kids! Let them dry and then frame it. Perfect gifts for the grandparents, aunts and uncles. Don't forget to put your child's name on it and date it so you can reminisce in the Christmas's to come.

Here are some examples of artwork that adults have done (that I pulled off the internet).

Really? People buy these things? My 3 year old could do that!
