There’s no shortage of protein shake canisters around my house. I drink a lot of protein shakes throughout the week and I’m often left with empty containers perfect for crafts etc.

Today the kids and I made LEGO mini-figure heads. I stripped the label, they painted the containers yellow with 50 cent acrylic yellow paint from Walmart using a foam brush.

After three coats per container we let it dry, then added black puffy paint (97 cents) in facial expressions. We used Google images to locate mini-figure expressions they wanted to draw. Once they found one, I drew an outline on the container, then we filled it in with the paint.

If you mess up, no worries.  Let it dry, then scratch off the mistake and touch-up the area.
