I was working on my art journal and painting in it, and he kept coming over to watch and then he wanted to join in, so I decided that was the perfect time for him to do his first canvas painting. I ran inside and grabbed a blank canvas. I only had acrylic paint for him to use though. This is definitely not kid friendly paint and probably not good for them numerous times, so I do not recommend using acrylic paint! However… he did have a blast and even though it took a while to get off him, it was well worth it.
Check out his creation and his colourful mess :)
He was pretty much in awe. That’s the best word that describes his reaction.
He got paint everywhere!
He kept looking at me like, “Momma, I can do this and you’re not telling me no?!”
Clapping his painted hands, I think he thought it felt weird.
Proof that mommy didn’t help much :) I pushed his hand down to make a print and I showed him how to dip his fingers in the paint. Oh, and I also painted his back, just for fun haha.
Chase’s creation. I love it and whenever we get a place of our own, it’s going in his room :)
