If it's not messy...'s not fun!!!

Well, that was the theme of our little Toddler Art Project hosted by the brilliant and brave Kaela.
She found an awesome idea on this blog and had all the materials and had everything prepared for almost a dozen little messy monkeys.

Gianna met Anna in the driveway and they became fast friends.
Here's my little Picasso busy at work - before she scoped out the super-awesome backyard of our hosts.
Almost done --- ready to dry.
Kaela had already affixed vinyl letters on the blank cavasses which were later removed to reveal this oh-so-appropriate message...
If it's not messy, it's not fun.

Funny how that theme kept coming up throughout the afternoon.
Only Kaela's cool enough to have blue sand in her water/sand table.
Gianna was diggin' the blue sand.
Stephanie coaching her sweet Anna to take a picture of her.
A cookie and a friend... doesn't get much better than that!

And now for the final masterpiece!!!!
....with a little extra paint and handprints added this morning.
What an awesome little memory for a two year old....and her Mommy.
Thanks Kaela & Erik.
Your creativity and hospitality are appreciated.

  1. I absolutely LOVE this idea!! When I was teaching at EDS, the two-year-olds did something like this on a monsterous canvas. It came out so beautiful, and it sold at the auction for $2400, wow! I have been searching for the perfect painting for our breakfast area, and I think this may be just perfect.


It means a lot that you took the time to leave a message!
