An afternoon crafting with the grandchildren

I had my youngest granddaughters to visit the other day, and we spent the afternoon crafting.  They love my sparkle pens, and also wanted to play with the brushos.  I also found the children's scissors, which had got mislaid in my stash, so obviously they had to be used too!

4 yr old's birthday card for her mum created with sparkle pens.
(she ran out of space for the word Birthday!)

4 year old's first attempt at using drawing gum and a mapping pen. which was
then painted with water colours.

7 year old's picture with drawing gum and mapping pen, and then
sprinkled with brushos and spritzed with water.

10 year old''s "art journaling" using sparkle pens for the abstract, blue purple piece,
using drawing gum and a paintbrush for the masking of the right-hand piece coloured with more sparkle pens.
Random "squiggles" on a piece of torn pearlised pink paper created with Pebeo marker pens.
 Finally all mounted on black card.
As you can see they had a fun afternoon, playing with Nanny's stash!
