Here at Graco, we’re all a little infatuated with our new Internet friend, Pinterest. Many gals from the social media team get together monthly for a Pinterest Potluck where we pick a pin, get together for lunch and create. (We’re really looking forward to borrowing our sister company, Calphalon’s, test kitchen one month to try a Pinterest recipe!)
But – I’m afraid I have a PinterestFAIL to share with you today. (wah-wah)
After being re-pinned over forty times within forty minutes of tagging this photo, I decided it certainly seemed like a perfect Pinterest Craft to do IRL (in real life) with Gracie.
Our effort: take a toilet paper roll, spend about fifteen minutes trying to get a good heart shape, get excited that it’s ready, dip into finger paint, discover heart is actually lopsided and is making funny “C” shapes instead of hearts.
Regroup: Cut roll down to even out, try again.
Result: the only shape it’s making is a sort of fortune cookie…. and the little girl is much more interested in finger painting on her highchair instead of using our homemade “stamp” anyways. (Good thing we have the Graco Blossom with wipe-clean tray and fabric for easy clean! )
In the end? We gave up and went a different direction.. adorable, if I do say so myself! (Then again, this Mama is admittedly biased.)
And by the way…. did you know that Graco is on Pinterest? We’ve been curating some of our favorite ideas for baby nurseries, crafting ideas for kids, adorable baby photos and more. Be sure to follow us – and let us know what you’d like to see on our boards.
