Not your Grandma’s Kitty….

 1 Here is a super simple, kid-friendly Halloween project.  You know those ceramic collectable cats everyone had in the 80’s?  I am pretty sure I gave one just like this to my Grandma back in the day……(Love you GG!)
2 I picked up these two felines from a local thrift store for $1, but I have seen similar ones at the dollar store.  Hannah carried them around for two days pretending they were her “pets”.
3 I let her paint them with non-toxic craft paint.  (no primer necessary)
4 Although at first she was very anti-black because she insisted it made them look “mean”…..and wanted to paint them pink instead.
5 Perfect scary Halloween black cats.
6 Let me know if you find some kitties to paint, would love to see the before and afters. :)
