Ok, so I'm just a few months late at posting this idea. But everyone takes the summer off, right?
Thanks for putting up with us... if you're still out there. ;)
My boys had a great time making this art piece for Father's Day this past year.
(I have seen this idea on another blog... but can't remember where... so sorry that I don't have that reference for you)
I had my 4 year old paint the blue background one day. I just told him that we were painting and set him up with the right colors. (last year he ended up telling Daddy what the present was before Father's day... I learned my lesson) Then I put it up to dry and let him continue to paint on paper.
A few days later I did their hand prints. A one year old makes it REALLY difficult to get a decent handprint from. Thus, his looks like he has 6 fingers. Oh well. Then I put it up to dry for a few more days.
I took it down to add the finishing touches.
Then I let the boys help me wrap it right before we gave it to Daddy.
