So, I’ve been away from the house a lot lately because of National Hot Dog Month. I had some time today and I picked up some Crayola finger paints, some squishy plastic balls and some squirt guns. The squirt guns were for playing after our little art project. The finger paints were to be used with a one of the sides of the television box. Eva asked me if we could do this sort of painting project every week. I told her that I can’t go buying a new TV every two weeks (two big sides to each box). But before we got into painting that big piece of cardboard we had another art project to do.
Allison saw the family hand print project on Pinterest and wanted to do one for us. So I put my hand in dark blue paint (what else), Allison did a bright green and then Eva did bright blue. Andrew squished his little hand to make a dark green print. We also did another print with Eva and Andrew’s prints on them too.
After we made the hand prints we broke out a bunch of foam paint brushes and took a giant piece of cardboard and began painting. We progressed to painting the squishy balls and rolling them all across the cardboard. Then we painted Andrew’s feet and walked him across the board. Eventually we ended up in a little paint fight as we threw paint on the board and on each other.
Then we broke out the squirt guns.
