Mural Painting

A couple weeks ago, A (T's cousin that you've seen around the blog) spent the night over for the first time. Whenever A comes over, I love to do atleast one activity for the girls. It's fun to see how different, or how similar, their creativity and imaginations are.

This art activity was really easy. I just taped up a long roll of T's easel paper onto our backyard fence. Set out some paints and handed the girls some paintbrushes.

I also had the pool out full of water for easy cleanup. (Which actually became an activity in and of itself- mixing different paint colors in the pool.)

Body painting was also inevitable. Which was followed with painting of rocks and sticks. (Didn't get to take a picture of that.)


  1. Wow, you have a tall fence! And wasn't the weather great for outdoor art a few weeks ago. Fall comes fast! Sigh!

  2. The weather was great and is wonderful again this week. Yay! :) Yes, Fall came fast, but I'm excited. It's my favorite season.
