Making A Mother's Day Craft Project with Painters Paint Markers

My grandson and I decided to make a Mother's Day gift for his Mom (my daughter Samantha). We have done projects together before, and they are always fun. He knew he wanted to give her flowers, so it was my job to come up with a craft idea that would go along with them.

I had heard about Painters Paint Markers from Elmer's, and that they will work on almost any surface. So I went to Walmart to buy some. I found them in the craft section.

They have a good selection, with packs of the paint markers in bright colors. They even have a pack of pastel colors, which are on sale for $7.

I decided to get the individual markers, they are a great price at $1.97, and you can buy only the colors you need. It says they work on any surface, and I'm pretty excited to try them out.

I have decided that my grandson and I will decorate a vase to hold the flowers that he wants to give his Mom.

I selected the colors yellow, blue, red and green to decorate the vase.

My grandson asked me to write "Mom" on the vase because he was giving it to her on Mother's Day. The word actually gave us something to work around, and made a great focal point. He loves using the Elmer's markers, and I can see more projects for us in the future. I thought they might be a little hard for him to handle, but they weren't at all.

We worked on it together and it was a lot of fun. We drew on hearts, flowers, and big dots. The paint markers were so easy to use, and were very fast drying so there were no paint smudges.

I really do love doing crafts and I can see that the Elmer's Painters Paint Markers can make any painting project much easier. Our vase project is coming along nicely, and we are almost finished.

Here is our finished project. I just love it, and so does my grandson. He is very proud of it, and the flowers he bought with his own money. We had a great time together making this very special project, and he can't wait to give it to his Mom on Mother's Day. #ExpressYourself
