I’m dying to see it.
I love it when my kids make art!So when Goldfish® Crackers asked me to get creative and use their crackers in a fun way with my kids…..the answer was clear: Goldfish Cracker Self Portraits!
All those bright colors.
All those cute crackers!
So on a rainy afternoon I asked the kids if they wanted to make self-portraits with me. I thought we’d start by taking a photo of ourselves, to base our Goldfish cracker portraits on.
Well my kids happened to be in a slap-stick happy, ultra goofy mood that day….so through a few giggles Owen asked, “what’s a portrait?”
“Well, it can be a painting or a photo or something that’s made to look like you, by you.”
“A photo portrait?!!”
Apparently the words photo portrait are hilarious when you’ve been cooped up all day.
I could hardly get a photo in without him moving.
So we tried taking a group photo instead.
Till Owen yelled, “photo portrait!”
And Lucy lost it.
So we ditched the photos and dove right into the project….and all those crackers.
….sampling along the way of course.
You’ll love it.
Just like you love watching your kids be creative together.
…and listening to their feedback on your own projects.
“Mom, you should add a neck to your portrait. That’s how portraits are done….”
Thank you Lucy.
And eventually our portraits were done.
Let us introduce ourselves….
And there you go.
(Part of) our family….in Goldfish crackers.
