A little while back, my husband came up with a great idea to create life size (well... life size for toddlers anyway) characters for the yard for decoration and for photos with the kids. What a fantastic idea! Well he worked hard and they came out so cute! He is pretty crafty I must say, but he didn't do this freehand, he had some help from a fabulous tool called the Tracer Projector.
In some of them, he used a combination of both paint and Sharpie.
As you can see, Cookie Monster's present is colored using Sharpie. Same goes with Big Bird's legs, tongue, and eyelids.
And if you don't feel like using paint at all, you can color in the entire illustration using Sharpies like our Oscar the Grouch here!
Such a simple project that makes a BIG impact! The kids are going to love them...especially Jake!
Stay tuned for photos from Jake's 2nd Birthday Party!
