Bathroom Sign: SYTYC Week 1

My kids have to start sharing a bathroom. That means I have to change it to something that will work for both a boy and girl. The only thing my two kiddos could agree on was fish. Is fish the most original idea? Probably not, but you can't argue with kids that are finally agreeing and not fighting.

I needed something that I could hang on the wall above their towel hooks. I decided to make them a sign. I knew right away what I wanted it to say. I went with: "one fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish". My oldest kiddo LOVES to read stories to my littlest kiddo. Dr. Seuss books are 9 times out of 10 the books they are reading. I think it's the perfect saying to show something they love to do together.

Almost all the supplies I needed were things we already had around the house. The wood was leftovers in my hubby's scrap pile, the vinyl I've had on hand for months, the metal piece on the back was also in the hubby's scrap pile. The only thing I had to buy was blue craft paint (go figure it ran out before I finished the first coat).

What I did was cut 4 pieces of wood to 24 inches long. I gave them a quick sand and painted them with craft paint. Once they were dry I cut out the vinyl letters. We had a scrap piece of metal used for stairs laying around our garage. I had my husband help me screw that on the back to hold all the boards together. I also attached a picture hanger to the back.

This weeks challenge for sure gave me the push to get going on the kiddos bathroom. I'm so pleased with how this turned out!
