One of My Favorite Toys
I had one of my 5 grandsons for a week before Christmas
and he is a creative sort,
I gave him a pretty cool art set for his birthday in November
and he brought it and we used it.
We painted on paper using acrylic paints and foam brushes.
I've never painted anything but a wall using foam brushes, but I thought it might go better.
We had my snowman in a little setup, but the only thing we got on the paper was the snowman.
I received this little snowman on my first Christmas
and have always loved it.
I've sort of worn it out and he's no longer white, but he is still one of my favs.
After we finished the snowman, then we painted trees.
He wanted to paint an apple tree and I painted fir trees.
This was all him. I didn't help him one little bit, except to tell him to add more apples.
This is Aidan holding my snowman.
I spent several years holding him just like this.
Here's the creative one all dolled up and ready for his close up.
This doesn't get any better!
We had a great time painting and creating.
