Today, I had company as I quickly painted my Watermelon Flower. A little too quickly, I’m afraid. Being distracted by the wee ones, my seeds ran and it was quite messy, but it is just a coloring page and we all had fun non-the-less! Little Lady and Little Guy each picked out a coloring page. Little Lady chose the Log Cabin Coloring Page and Little Guy picked the Inch Worm Coloring Page.
Little Lady began with her coloring page, but did 3 more watercolors with her own designs. She took her work quite seriously.
Little Guy, on the other hand, spent more time painting himself than his page. This points to the necessity of using non-toxic paints with wee ones 🙂
We all had a great time! Just a note about paints. My very favorite watercolors are
However, these watercolors, the ones I used today, are and sell for $3.99. The colors are beautiful and apply easily to the paper. I am quite happy using the Crayola Watercolors and if money is an issue, this just points out that you don’t have to use the most expensive supplies to get beautiful results. Just saying 😉
