Painting Christmas Ornaments

All the fun you can have for $2.79!

The last time I was at JoAnn's I grabbed a couple poured plaster Christmas ornaments to let the kids paint. This morning we broke out the paints and brushes and they had at it. I don't do a whole lot of crafty things with the kids, which makes me feel bad because I do plenty of crafty things myself. One thing I do do with them is let them paint. I have a ton of those little Apple paint bottles and keep a supply off tons of brushes, small canvases, etc.

Jeremiah painted a snowman with a scarf around his neck and Hannah painted a little bird. She said "It's Daddy's!" while she painted so I guess it's for him. She also painted her hands, face and chest. Jeremiah, being profficiant at painting, did not. LoL!

When he had finished his sparrow he painted a little tiny canvas I'd also bought. I think it's 2.5"x3", so cute! They sell little easel stands for them which I will have to go get one of since Jeremiah says this painting is for his Nana Cheryl. He always paints in abstracts and I always love them.

  1. So awesome. I want to do this - this year during their break. Someone was telling me of a place near by that is doing them in the store for 25 cents. I sure hope they have the right price. Would be a cheap field trip for the kids and I.
