painting a banner for the police party
January 11, 2011
Juliet and I took advantage of Lucia's nap time to work on a banner project for the party. I cut up a bunch of squares, rectangles, and triangles and we attempted to recreate the flags on this page of Cars and Trucks and Things that Go.
The shapes are very basic, so I would paint a stripe, then tell Juliet to help me paint the next one. She got a little side tracked and started painting her own flags and then starting making "Juliet-land" flags, but that was okay. As long as we were having fun!
The floor did get a little messy, however.
Collateral damage. Sometimes a sock has to take one for the team.
I love this post about painting with children by Ashley from Lil Blue Boo. Have you read it yet? She's given me some ideas for some bigger painting projects for Juliet as soon as the weather gets a bit warmer...
