…about art time with a toddler.

this week marked our first days of summer 2015. to mark this auspicious occasion, L and i checked one item off of our summer bucket list: paint some canvases together. while our paintings may not be worthy of a place in the MoMA, we certainly had a blast painting side by side, which is all that matters, am i right?

materials

– blank canvases

– acrylic paints {i used what i had on hand from past projects, but since L is such a fan of making art, i hope to add a few more fun colors to our collection in the future!}

– foam paint brushes {again, i used what i had on hand, but i’d love to eventually purchase actual paint brushes for him to use!}

– paper plates {to hold our paints}

here’s a few photos of our little artist in action:

and voila – the finished product:

it was a great way to spend a summer afternoon, especially since the temperatures here in SD have been a bit on the cold side lately!
