Welcome! I am a mom to two wonderful kids, a lovely retired greyhound, and a wife to a great husband. Needless to say, there are a lot of daily messes to clean up around our house. Daily Messes is my blog to share ideas on things to do with your kids, snack and meal ideas, crafts, and holiday fun. I hope you find something to enjoy!

It's Sunglasses Day!

Today is Sunglasses Day! I thought it would be fun to paint our own sunglasses. Because Higgins has already broken 2 pairs of sunglasses this year, I bought the cheapest plastic ones I could find. He is super excited about making his own, so maybe these will actually last!

You will need:

  • Sunglasses (you can often find cheap plastic ones at the dollar bins at Target, Michael's craft stores, or local dollar store)
  • Mod Podge, optional
  • Acrylic enamel craft paint
  • Paint brush(es)

  1. If you have messy painters, you may want to cover the lenses with painters tape.
  2. Paint on designs, names, or shapes.
  3. Let dry.
  4. Cover in a coat of Mod Podge. This step is optional, but I found that the paint chipped off our glasses without a top coat of the Mod Podge.
