Kids + Art

These pictures are from a few weeks ago, but I had to share them, for the grandparent’s sake.

We painted.

Doesn’t happen too often cause it’s such a mess to clean up and Chad’s attention span with painting is very short.  Like 3 minutes.  Then he gets frustrated and makes a big mess.

But he’ll line up the paints in a row for half an hour.

We found a picture in one of Sadie’s library books that she wanted to paint, and we all painted it.  Or our version of it.  That’s mine in the foreground.

This one was Chad’s.  I kept it.  It’s all smudged from leaning over it to get more paint.

Sadie did the big green blob and the one in the center of the picture.  And the stack of papers at the back too.

Before we cleaned up, I found a piece of styrofoam and drew some hearts on it really deep with a pen.  We used a brush to cover it with paint and stamped it onto paper.  A roller would have worked better but I didn’t have one that was accessible within 5 minutes.

Looking forward to our next painting adventure.

Just not the clean up.
