We Heart Art




The ladies at Three Bay B Chicks, Domestically Challenged and Living Proof That God has a Sense of Humor are celebrating art and creativity this week. Check out these three blogs for some wonderful artwork and creativity by kids and adults.
My girls love art-coloring, painting, creating with play doh, glue, you name it-they love it! It's probably their favorite thing to do. This morning and afternoon, my 5 and 3 yr old worked with water colors and had a great time mixing colors and painting whatever they wanted. They ended up working on paper although my 5 yr old started out with paper plates.

My 5 yr old often spends all day coloring, cutting and gluing. She draws people, colors and cuts them out and then plays with them. She makes clothes for them, crowns, furniture (then she pulls out the scotch tape......forgot to mention, my girls also have a deep love for scotch tape). Now that I'm posting these pictures, I wish I'd taken more pictures of her past creations-I need to make sure I do that so we can show her what she created when she was younger. Here's a cat she made and cut out and then played with all day-it was her pet and it could fly :) The pink line towards the top is a leash.

Here's a picture she made for me for Mother's Day-me and her-love it!

My 3 yr old is usually right beside her sister, coloring away, but often finds that she has to create right where she is when the inspiration hits her or when mom is out of the room.
Yes, although that looks like a piece of white paper, it's my kitchen wall-yes, that's an outlet down at the bottom. We have quite a few walls in our house with these beautiful pieces of art work. We call her our free interior decorator.

We love our kids artwork. We had them all do a painting on canvas using the same colors. It turned out super cute.

Join me in some baby shower fun today by visiting my blog!

So many cute little projects. I love the cat! And the picture of the two of you is so precious. The coloring on the walls? Probably not so precious. ;)

Hope you have a great weekend, Dawn!
