This week’s theme is “In the Garden”. I spotted these cute little wooden birdhouses (I keep wanting to call them “dollhouses”!) at JoAnn’s for $1 apiece the other day and thought it might be fun to paint them.
Conveniently enough, they were located right next to a display of Delta Soy Paint. I let the girls each pick out a few colors, so we ended up with Pink Carnation, Pink Hibiscus, Sunflower, Kiwi, Blue Sky and Wisteria. Even the paint colors fit in with the theme! (Although maybe not so much Kiwi. It sure wouldn’t grow in a garden around here…)
I learned my lesson from the last multi-color painting project and gave each girl their own palette of colors and cup to rinse brushes in so Anna could mix away to her heart’s content and Carolyn could be more particular about her colors.
I think they turned out very cute!
And I already have a glimmer of an idea of how to make birds for them. Need to go check the random craft stash for pompoms…
