DIY Art on a Rainy Day

Today was a rainy day and with rainy day comes indoor art projects.  I usually don't let baby bunny use paints because it would end up in his mouth (yup), on his hair (yup), and on the walls (not this time!).  However, the kids have been sick for so long now that I was running out of things to do.

This was the end result:

What do you need to make your own art?
  • White paper
  • Paint brushes
  • Acrylic paint
  • 1 Foam poster board
  • Imagination!

Gather up some supplies

Stick the pictures on the board and admire their handiwork

Clean up the mess and throw both kids into the bathtub.

Brag to the neighbours

 Let's take a closer look

I used painter's tape to stick the pictures onto the foam board.   We are going to keep the foam board up in the kitchen so that we can change the art a little more often.  We now have this picture framed in our hallway and maybe one of these will make the "cut" and end up in a picture frame.   Who knows?  Maybe it'll be worth something one day :o)

We are going to the Art Gallery of Ontario tomorrow.   Joshie is now super excited about looking at the art.  I'm guessing we will be painting more when we return home.

Happy painting!
