Work of Art

The weather has been nice and the kids have wanted/needed a mind exercising activity to keep them occupied for awhile. I have some bare wall space so I decided to buy each of the kids a canvas and some paints to have them all do their own masterpieces. Ethen had the hardest time coming up with something to paint so he ended up painting the word Football. Luke was all about putting on some handprints ( I think he just likes the feeling of painting himself). Phoebe had her picture all figured out a day beforehand, and Paisley was happy with any and all colors. I love how they turned out and decided I need to do this more often. Next time I think I will have a theme they all have to paint so I can see how differently they interpret it.



The final Works of Art!

Those paintings are awesome!!! And it looks like it was so much fun! I like the theme idea too, that would be really cool, cause you can see they all have their own style. Great idea!
