Thank you to everyone who is liking and sharing the post, it is a lovely family keepsake and i encourage everyone to have a go of you have the means to do so! if you dont have paints then make it and paint it at a later date!

Just a few other questions answered...

I used acrylic paints (although you can use whatever you have 😊) and you paint it after it has been in the oven

Check the bottom is rock solid before you take it out and make sure you have it on the ovens lowest heat or it will burn instead.

KINDNESS CONNECTIONS TIP #8

 
Going out for walks, jogs, and bike rides will be so important in the days ahead. Perhaps after you've done your EXERCISE walk you can go back later in the day... Take RUBBER GLOVES, BAG or CONTAINER, and pick up some of the trash that has made its spring appearance.
 
Some people think that Covid-19 is Mother Earth's way of telling us to take of ourselves, each other and our planet. So let's begin...
 
This is a good time to SAFELY show some care and kindness to our environment. Begin with a simple spring clean up.
 
But please, use all safety precautions. Thank you.

KINDNESS CONNECTIONS TIP #2
Medical students at Western University are leading the way across the country with a student-led initiative to support health care providers. We’re so proud of these future health care leaders and their commitment to social responsibility!

 

The student-led initiative seeks to provide free childcare, errands and other volunteer services to health care providers in the London and Windsor areas between March 23 and April 3 while elementary and secondary schools in Ontario are closed.

It's being organized by medical students Yashoda Valliere, Gali Katznelson, Chris Zhang, Jessica Garabon and Montana Hackett.

“Although we are not yet physicians, we have an opportunity to support our colleagues. We are excited to begin this initiative, and we applaud our fellow medical students across the country who are now organizing in their own communities,” says fourth-year medical student Yashoda Valliere.

KINDNESS CONNECTIONS TIP #1

There are lots of songs you can sing while washing your hands in order to give them a thorough soap-and-water wash.

Here's another way: Loving Kindness Meditation

While washing your hands say it 3 times ~ one for all those you love; one for those you are not at peace with; one for all of those you haven't met (like healthcare workers!)
