Since I was in a much better love mood yesterday, we went back to the happy heart making mode. I was drawing hearts for the girls and teaching them how to draw it too. I would say, “Make a V, then add an M on top.”
Here is a funny little bit, you see True is on the left, well, if you look closely at the drawing, you can find one heart that looks to have some cherries on top. Actually, she drew the V, then the M on top, and then proceeded to add little circles on top of the M and said, “Look, Mommy can feed Soul.” I nearly died of laughter!
(large clipboards were from Joann’s craft store)
They wanted more practice drawing hearts, so then I drew some for them and gave them tracing paper to put on top for them to trace the hearts. Somehow Brave was still not able to follow the lines, but oh well!
We moved on to painting and we made hearts from our thumbprints. Brave always get a bit carried away and make some extra heart with her thumbs.
Soul and I, still in our pajamas (And I know Ben will say, “Why did you let Soul wear those for the picture?” But whatever we don’t dress cute all the time.) were right next to them supervising.
After our heart thumbprints, I took out some small canvases for the girls to continue making their own works of art. These little paintings are quite done and will continue on today.
It is always fun and relaxing doing things like this with the girls. They enjoy it so much! When Ben came home, they were raving and ranting about what they made and how they did it. They were so proud! We will be working on more fun stuff today and tomorrow as some friends are coming over and we are putting together my best friend’s wedding invitations. ‘Tis will be a busy, busy weekend and don’t forget to check back tomorrow as I will introduce my newest sponsor and our newest giveaway (oh and don’t forget to check the newest pictures below).
Happy Friday folks!
