Finger painting

Holiday + Rained In = Artist mode

As I lined the kitchen table with paper, I saw my nieces eyes glow... they knew what was about to go down. 

Me : "now.. do ya'll have aprons?"
My Nieces : "Noooooo"
Me : "Well then, remember the ones we made before? What do we need?"
My Nieces : "Grocery baggssssss"

They couldn't contain their excitement. 
They ran into the kitchen and started grabbing grocery bags, where then I cut out a part for their head & arms. 

I then brought out the old box filled with paint and told them to each choose 5 colours.... of course 5 seemed to be too little for these girls. 
We made a few dots on our papers, and then... got to the fun part !

  3. Love the grocery bag aprons. I must try that with the kids who never bring their painting aprons to school for art. I'm sure they'll never forget it after that. :)
