Painting With Household Items

>> Wednesday, February 23, 2011

Yesterday, Nani had the day off from school.  It was a teacher's in-service day.  So we spent the morning visiting daddy at the base and then after some lunch and quiet time, spent the afternoon painting.

A few weeks back, I found these in various dollar bins - shower mitts, heart-shaped nail brushes/pumice stones, and dish scrubbers.  This afternoon, I pulled them out, gave the girls some paint and let them go to town!  It was so fun to see what they created!

My kids love to paint with nontraditional items too. We found some flower shaped fly swatters that they used to paint on large paper at the easel. That was a big hit!

Looks like they both had a blast! I love the huge painting t-shirts =)

Dollar Bins are the best when doing crafts and stuff : )

And I'll say it such a fun and creative mom!!!!

If I turned my kids loose with those same items and some paint, it would be pure disaster.
