So, even with Daddy off working on our basement finishing project, we were still able to take advantage of an extra set of hands to do a little art project, while utilizing some much needed man-to-man coverage.
We found kid-friendly painting trays at the craft store, which proved to be a great way to (help) contain the mess.
And we decided on a few sponges as first paint brushes for fumbly little fingers. With a few paper plate “artists’ palettes” and some water-based toddler paint, we were ready to begin.
Nana led the way with a quick demo, channeling her artistic abilities. Nana was an art major in college, so I love that we did our first official painting with the artist herself.
Big Brother quickly got busy on a nice abstract, or perhaps, more modern piece.
And Little Brother jumped right in with a bit of pointillism – perhaps a future Seurat in the making? 😉
In the end, we were pretty proud of our little masterpieces. Oh, and the paintings were great, too.
