For Momma

More of my crafty inspiration for you all...

Here is an art piece that I helped some kids do last week as a birthday gift for their momma. It's a 15x30 canvas. I selected the colors, taped off the two outside ends and let two of the three boys go to it. I gave them each plates with dollops of paint and one brush. Their instructions were to just fill the squares with color. The outside orange and blue squares were done by an almost 5 year old and a just turned 7 year old.

After the outside paint was nice and dry, I re-taped and had the 8 year old do the middle one. He got a little creative with his area and told me he was adding a "hidden heart". How sweet...

Their momma loved it and is hanging it on her wall. The key to the success of projects like this is COLOR, COLOR, COLOR. The kids can paint wild crazy stuff that makes no sense and be very messy, but as long as the colors harmonize well with each other and the intended room, it will look fabulous!

Wow! That's about all I can say. It turned out great, I would never guess little kids made that!

You made my birthday wonderful! Thank you so much for taking time to help the kids make something for me. I know it meant as much to them as it did to me!

I love this idea. I really need to have more of my kids art work on the wall. I'll have to do something like this.

BTW I absolutly love my Meeup! I have used it more in this past week & 1/2 than I've ever used any other carrier. Ethan also loves to be in it and even fell asleep in it today :) I did a post of it too, come see his picture

So neat. I may have to try this. We bought some canvas boards for the kids to do a project on. It involved tissue paper, and it didn't do what it was suppose to do. I wonder if we can pull of the paper and do this on them instead??
