The other day, I had the bright idea to take the kiddos shopping for art supplies... now, we aren't strangers to art over here haha but it had been a little while since our last project- probably the first full-on paint-and-paint brush project we have had in the new house (ok I admit, I was nervous to paint in this house even if it is very easy to clean up...). I loaded up the kids and headed to the local Michael's because, hellllooooo.... I had a coupon! Yep, 50% off purchase....say no more!
So we gathered all the little supplies that we needed.... I had to restock some paint, get a some things for another project I'm working on and such. Oh, and get a canvas for the painting I finally was able to get around to painting for Luca (which was kind of my motivation for an art day).
I try really hard to be fair with my kiddos...so if I make something for the birdie man then I will try to make something for Luca as well and so on.... Well, so the last painting I did (I think haha)
was this little owl for Canaan's nursery. I finished it when I was still pregnant with him and before we moved into the "prairie house" (the house we just moved out of).
The short of it is...I owed Luca a painting...
so we got to it!
...he wanted to use "a lot" of colors....pleasssseeee!
...I was actually surprised at how precise he tried to paint this little bird house...he had to paint every piece of it...which I thought was awesome!
...his finished...well drying...product lol!!!
....and here is the project for Luca's room finally finished! He loves trains so much....especially Thomas...so I used that as a bit of inspiration and then just went with it! I like how it turned out...and he is in love with it too! He asked me every 5 minutes, "is it dry yet?"
All aboard the Luca train! hah
