On a whim, one day in our craft store, I bought the kids paint, paintbrushes, smocks...you know, the whole nine yards. Obviously this purchase wasn't thought all the way through. BUT, the kids LOVE to paint. After spreading out what feels like an entire Sunday's paper on the floor and tying on their cutie little smocks, I let them go to town.
This will keep them entertained for an hour or more. Josie is so thoughtful and meticulous with her painting. Wes is more the "throw every color on the canvas and see what it looks like" kind of painter.
But each style produces beautiful artwork that we will now display proudly on our art line in the kitchen.
So, perhaps the painting supply purchase was thought all the way through :)
