School has been out for a few weeks and the boredom is setting in. Poor Delia has the worst case of it. Lee was gone for the weekend again on a scout camp out and we needed something to do!
So I had the girls draw a self portrait and then they got to paint it. The girls were obsessed with mixing the paint colors to get the perfect shade of skin color, and using a stamper brush to adorn their shirts with polk a dots.
Delia put freckles all over her chin and painted her teeth so they have spaces in between them. So life like! ;)
Then we hung them up on the wall. They are like 3 feet tall, and don’t you bet I freaked myself out during the night – the paintings staring at me while Lee was gone.
But at least I didn’t hear the dreaded ‘Moooommmm… I’m bored!’ for the WHOLE afternoon!
What are some of the fun things you do to chase away summer’s boredom? (please share!!! I need more ideas!)
