My Petite Picassos

I have this slight Pinterest addiction lately. If you haven't checked it out already, you should. (But I warn you, you will waste a good portion of time there.) I found this adorable kid craft, and knew I wanted to do it. We went to Michaels and bought the required items since they were all on sale (and/or I had a coupon) and set off! 

We used 20x20 canvas boards and masking tape for this step. I think they ended up costing about $5 each. LOVE Michaels' sales! Those 'O's were tricky little things. 

Miss Zoey is oh so serious in her finger painting.

Mister Ford just worries more about mixing the colors and then complaining that his finger is dirty.

Warning!!! Kids get dirty in this project! You can see the kids painted on beards and mustaches. 
They crack me up! 
Mom even got in on the mustache action! 

Their masterpieces are drying! Can't wait to see what they are going to look like! 

After a long soak in a bubble bath, the kids are squeaky clean and smell so fresh. 

The next day the paint is dry and the tape comes off to reveal the final look. Not too bad if I do say so myself. :)

I loved doing this project with them, and I foresee more projects like this. I love kid art on the walls, and my kids are quite the little artists.

So cool they turned out really nice and they had a good time. We might have to try this one :)

Thanks! We really did have a good time. I'm sure your girls would have a blast too! It would be super cute for their bedrooms, a playroom, or even the living room.

It's so neat to see people actually pull of the stuff on Pinterest! Fantastic Job! Kids looked to have had a blast!
