Child's Name on Painted Canvas

I don't know about other kids, but Cohen LOVES to paint, so I knew he'd love this one!

--art canvas (whatever size you want)
--painters tape (not sure if regular masking tape would work, but I didn't want to chance it)
--paints (we just used washables)

I used the painters tape to tape off Cohen's name and then just let him go to town painting all of the canvas. After it's dry, simply peel off the tape to reveal the white, paint-free name beneath. NOTE: if you take the tape off when it's mostly dry but not completely dry, you can use a wet wipe to still remove any smudges of paint that seeped beneath the edges of the painters tap; especially useful if you have a kid who likes to use A LOT of paint like mine does!
