For Christmas the kids got an easel. I put it in the kitchen with every intention of using it all the time. Well, we do use the chalk board side often, but for some reason I did not want to paint. I never thought I would have a hard time with messy art projects – but I do! So lots of paint, kids not trapped in their seats, and roaming around the kitchen = stressful!!!
I finally broke down and bought 11 different colors of tempra paint. Then it sat, unused for a couple of weeks. Last weekend when Joshua was taking a nap, I wanted to do something quiet….so we painted.
And it worked out great. They both got to paint at the same time. Each kid got to pick 3 colors to paint with. Wesley chose black, purple and blue. Jillian chose yellow, orange and pink.
Now that I know how easy it was, we will be doing it more often!
