I asked her to draw 4 rainbows for each of her grandparent, and I'd frame it up to give it as a little gift to them at the dinner. Sort of like a I-love-you-thank-you-for-taking-care-of-me-for-the-last-5-years kinda present :) I'm not sure how she chose the colours for each grandparent's rainbow, but they were each unique and she could tell them apart.
"That one is for Ah Kong.. and that one is for Ah Ma. Don't mix them up!!" Ok, my dear ^^V
I thought my MT Peranakan tiles tape that I bought from MT Expo Singapore last year went very well with the black frame. I didn't want to cover the whole frames in washi tapes though as it would be too-overwhelming, but just to add a little pizazz :P
I used these 3M Scotch Expressions tape for the grandmas' red frames. They are designed to stick on a wide variety of surfaces for both permanent and temporary applications and I was very pleased that even though I had to reposition some tapes, they removed cleanly and stuck on well again. No wastage :P
Found their version of the washi tapes to be as good as MT's actually... and that says a lot because MT from Japan is a very highly-regarded brand for washi tapes. Some washi tapes from generic brands are not sticky enough or can't be repositioned easily. You don't get that problem with 3M Scotch washi tapes. And like MT's, you can also write on them with a pen, pencil or marker.
If you're looking for other creative things to make with your washi or masking tapes, check out the resources & tutorials at My Activity Room. There's lots of inspiration to create with your kids things for the home, school, parties etc! Also, read about the other fun activities we did with Lil Pumpkin here or my list of Kid-Friendly places in Singapore.
