A few weeks ago (like in, um, April because I am just that good about getting pictures off the camera), the kids and I hauled out paper, paint and brushes for an art project. I’d picked this cute bird lesson to do and the older ones set to with a will.
Here’s Miss M.’s:
While the kids were working on their birds, Mom (that’s me) decided to try something she’d wanted to for a while (hey, the paints and paper were already out, right?)—string art! Wouldn’t this make a cute background for a collage or ATCs?
Once Miss M. was done with her bird, she decided to do her own thing and came up with this shiny and colorful abstract art:
Sir I. painted black construction paper a grey-blue, then decided to get up close and personal with the paint. Look, Ma!
The art session ended quite soon after this point. Washed hands, cleaned brushes and palettes, put away supplies, and spread our art on the kitchen counter to dry. Time to get the littlest from his nap and go out and play!
