I recently got to try out a new product, Elmer’s Single Painters Pen’s.  They are really fun to use!  I created a display board for my son with some of his Kindergarten work from the year. 

I picked up my Paint Pen’s at Walmart, you can see my shopping trip on Google+.  There are so many different colors to choose from and at $1.97, you can afford to get several.  
 I grabbed Black, Orange, Green and Yellow.  
When I was ready to get started,  I gathered up everything that I would need.  For this project I needed my display board, Painters Pens, Tape runner, stencil, artwork from my son and something to cut with.  

 I really like this smaller size of a tri-fold display board, it feels kind of like a giant card that I plan to sit on his dresser.  
I started out by added one of his pretty pictures that he had colored.  Then I wanted to stencil across the top.  
I used pencil first and then went over it with the Paint Pen. 

 His self portrait!
 His spelling work is great!
I was loving painting with the pen’s so I kept adding details.  
It turned out so cute!  

 I will be picking up more of the Elmer’s Paint Pens in the future, they have a new spot in my craft room with the tools that I use regularly.  

Here is another quick project that I did with the Paint Pen’s.  
 I printed out this sign for his last day of school and then just colored in some of the letters to make it bright and colorful.  

I can’t believe my baby is going to first grade!

One more idea that I used the Elmer’s Paint Pen’s for is a quick and easy teacher’s gift.  I picked up this little bucket for $1.  
I used the yellow and orange colors to fill in the flowers. 
 Then I filled it with some fun summer goodies and decorated a bag to give it in.  This is a cute, easy and inexpensive gift for a teacher.

    Lots of things…
    1) LOVE your craft table!
    2) Your kiddo is just adorable…congrats to him (and you!) on completing Kindergarten! My girls will be starting this fall. I am more nervous than they are.
    3) Your Walmart had so many more colors of the single painters than mine!
    4) The board is awesome. I love the paper background you used and that you were able to use artwork as well as some of his “homework” to show what he learned.
    5) What a great idea for a teacher gift!
    Thanks so much for sharing!
