My last two posts have been about houses so I'll even it up by doing one more.
I tended 8 of my 10 grandchildren the other day. I knew I needed a project to keep them busy and happy and to keep me sane.
(Just doing a project with 8 kids under the age of 9 that involves acrylic paint, shows that I never was sane!)
I picked up some wooden bird houses at JoAnn's for $1.00.
Newspapers were spread out on the patio and the kids painted how ever and what ever they wanted. You can tell by C8's face that the paint wasn't just on the bird houses!
2-year-old T-Roy had his house painted in no time at all. He enjoyed mixing all the paint together on the plate and letting me know that he was making chocolate milk.
Baby Aly loved the project. She didn't do any painting but she did what ever she pleased. Notice the cereal in her right hand. Where did she get that?
Kels and Keiti show off the project.
Some flowers, feathers and pom poms added just the right amount of pizzazz that any bird would enjoy.
Have you done some fun projects or activities with your children?
