Friday Art Class

Today in Art class, Butterfly used all sorts of brushes, combs, and tools to paint with!

 Using secondary colours today.

And here's where she drops all brushes and tools and goes for the whole hand experience again!  Yup, that's my lil' Butterfly!  Never afraid to get messy :)

Scraping the paint with her fingernails for more designs.  Oh ya, great bath-time today- scrubbing right under all those nails!

 Get right in those paint trays.

 And there we have it.  A little girl who looks like she's been working in the Hershey factory all morning! :)

The washing-up bin... lovely brown water.

 This is a project they worked on for 3 consecutive weeks.  (Allowing drying time after each step.)

We made beads out of Crayola Air Dry Clay

 They were strung on skewers, the skewer sticks then placed upright in a styrofoam block to dry.

The following week we painted the dry beads.

Then they were put back the same way to dry.

Today, they were ready to be jewelry!

 Stringing them together

 to make a beautiful necklace!

It almost looks like a Flinstone necklace! :)


  1. Oh I've got to do the beads thing with my daughter when she's a bit older. She's so into clothes and dressing up and art - she'll absolutely love it!

  2. I think we'll do this too in very near future! :) Thank you for stopping by This and that about kids blog and commenting on pipe cleaners V'day flowers. Glad you like them. :)

    I would also like to invite you to post any toddler related posts to High paw linky each Friday at: (my 2nd blog)
