budding artist

yet again, 
i get caught up in stressing out about finding a really cool project to do
when really all the kids want to do is 
anything that involves 
making a mess

so today 
it was paper plates
and paint brushes

these kids are creative and just went to town 
painting a million 30 paper plates.

they had fun
they used some great language
mixed up some great colors
and created some amazing things

i sometimes need a reminder that the things we do are for the kids
not me, the parents, or the blog...THE KIDS!

can you find the plate that was named
"a pink snowman in a purple blizzard"

i tell ya these kids are talented, creative, and smart!


  1. So simple and I bet they had a ton of fun!!! Love it!

  2. This is so cute.. my kids love to paint too! It is a good time to give them plain paper and let them go. I am going to get some plates next shopping trip and let their creativity roll.. Thanks for sharing.

  3. This is so true, isn't it? My kids are just not as impressed with elaborate projects as I am! They love to paint as well... and painting on paper plates is always fun!
