Happy Mother's Day

It's been a long time since I've done an art project with the kids.  And honestly, I've never had Owen paint before.  But I saw this art project somewhere, probably Pinterest, and thought it would be a good one to try for Mother's Day.
So since Owen was a finger painting newbie, it didn't go very well.  In fact, he refused to touch the paint with his fingers.  (Granted he loves nothing more than eating ketchup off of his fingers).  So he used a paint brush and had a great time.  Owen painted grass and leaves.

After Owen's portion dried, Caroline got to use a fork and different colored paint to stamp tulips on the leaves.  I was impressed how easy this was.  Caroline enjoyed it and it didn't take her long to complete the project.

Voila!  Kind of an abstract tulip painting!
