It Sounded Like a Great Idea...

Bennett LOVES art...coloring with crayons, markers, watercolors and painting with brushes! She colors everyday, which I don't mind because she can access it all by herself, it is easy clean-up and it keeps her busy for awhile doing something creative. However, every so often she asks to paint. Since it isn't a daily occurrence (or even weekly), I try to say "yes" every time she asks.

Unfortunately, it always ends up the same way....Preston wants to paint (and he is sloppy), they don't like to share paints, so I have to create two separate plates with a large variety of paint colors, they paint one picture each and then they are done! The whole set-up process takes about 5-10 minutes, and they paint for roughly 5 minutes, then I clean up, which takes another 5 minutes.

Ahhhh....the things we do for love.
