I have loved having ALL the grandbabies here at my house all at the same time. It only happens once a year around this time because of Emersyn’s birthday. We decided this year to try and commemorate everyone being together and we decided on letting each of the kids paint a canvas in a beach theme. Matti, who will be 10 in October decided on a Sea Turtle. We found some designs that had a matching theme and printed them out. Then Stephanie and I transferred the design to the canvas with a pencil. Then each child picked out the colors they were using and we put the colors for them in paper plates. Huttson is deep in concentration as he started on the outlines of his Jellyfish. Hutton will be 8 at the end of September so he is the oldest of the boys. It wasn’t easy to tear him away from playing a computer game but once he started painting he really loved it. Here is the finished Jellyfish project. All of the children start out being so careful and trying to really stay in the lines when they first begin. But, by the time that they are almost at the end, they start to get tired and the lines become fatter and fatter. Lol! That sounds like me, I must be just getting tired a lot. Lol!
Little Jett will be 6 on the first of October and he is really being very careful with his outlines. He picked one of the hardest pictures to paint out of all the ones that we showed him. I was a little concerned that it would too hard for him but I was wrong. This little man wasn’t about to let the difficult colorations get the best of him. What do you think? Didn’t he do a great job with all the different colors? I am really loving all the bright colors that each one of the kids chose. Notice his fat seaweed at the bottom. Yep, that was the last thing he painted and he was wanting to be done with this project. Lol!
My little mini-me is a leftie. We had to rearrange all the paints to suit her. Lol! She outlined her purple Octopus in a dark purple and then filled it in with a lighter purple. I think her favorite part was doing the bubbles though. She loved the blue color and the dabber that made the bubbles.
She didn’t want to do the eyes and instead made Stephanie do them for her. It is amazing how short the attention span of a 5-year-old can be. It is amazing how LONG a 5-year-old will remember something they want to do and you don’t want them to do. They can rival an Elephant in that field. Lol!
We do have one more canvas for little Mr. Beckham. It is a crab with claws and his little handprints are going to be its legs. Stephanie drew the body of the crab and its claws and tomorrow we are going to try and attempt to get his handprints on the canvas. That should be interested. Remember what he did with the sand at Myrtle Beach? I am sure one of us will have to be on guard to keep the hands out of the mouth. Lol!
After all of the canvases are finished and dry I am going to spray them with a sealer because I am going to hang them in the pool house. Won’t that be too cute????
