A very bright, sunny day plus four little cousins who had been cooped up with the rain and cold all weekend long was reason enough to break out the paint and canvases and go outside. But we also had the goal of making a set of artwork for Father’s Day – a housewarming gift for Grandpa and Grandma’s new cabin in the woods. The kids enjoyed their project, although we probably should have stopped a few of them before their paint colors mixed to the point of muddiness. Body painting was also very popular. We started with tempera paint until I managed to find the bag of acrylic craft paint I’d purchased for story stones (coming soon). The craft paint had much better color than the tempera paint did.
