I do so many easy, fun, creative things with the children at home, I have decided to start sharing a 'Creative Home' Series on Sundays.
For the first post, I want to share this painting that is probably the piece of art that receives the most commentary from guests when they come over. It is a 40 x 60 inch canvas that I had the children work on all last summer covered in children's paint, markers, and crayons.
We accidentally left the canvas out in the yard, and the rain created the ghost like effect on the canvas, which I'm crazy about.
So if you are looking for a simple, ongoing project at home for little ones, this is easy. I just recommend doing it outside (we propped the canvas against a tree,) knowing it will take a few sessions to cover the canvas, and putting your kids in bathing suits and letting them run in the sprinkler post-paint session.
