Cooperative Painting

Keeping the boys entertained and engaged in doing more than watching television is sometimes difficult this summer.  Last week I decided to surprise them by setting up colorful paint palettes, various fun painting instruments and a huge piece of craft paper on the back porch bar.  They were thrilled to begin their creative endeavor!  Once the t.v. had been turned off…

I loved how they jumped right into working together to create a painting.  It was fun to watch their ideas take shape.

Here’s what the final product looked like.  So colorful and interesting.  I think I need to make painting a weekly project…

I’m writing the post during a few unexpected quiet moments on Sunday evening.  My mom took the boys to dinner followed by a visit to the park and J has gone fishing in the Keys with Big Red.  I have to admit that I’m really enjoying this time alone 🙂
