The kids were with me at AC Moore when we picked out some new colors of Acrylic paint. They were super excited to paint!
To hopefully not mix the colors I put each color in a bowl and each color had it's own brush. The kids could only have one color at a time. And too keep the paint off their clothes I just had them go shirtless since it was summer. The smocks I have don't cover their sleeves, so I figured it'd just be best to go shirtless.
Instead of spreading lots of newspaper out, I just put a cheap $1 plastic table cloth on the table. It worked great! And after the paint on it dried, I folded up and used it again when we did the second coat of paint.
Mackenzie got pretty messy, so I was glad I took her clothes off! She had so much fun painting and was really into it! She also did a great job!!!
Tanner is so serious when he's painting.
Here are the finished paint pieces drying, and waiting for a second coat of paint or painted designs on them.
Here are the finished pieces, after I sprayed them with clear acrylic, except Kolin's because he took his home.
