Earth Day 2013

In keeping with past tradition, I wanted to make sure that the boys got to do a little something for Earth Day this year (I was clearly was actually three days later on the 22nd!).  Traditionally we have planted something, but since we just planted a little vegetable garden last weekend, I decided to keep this Earth Day project more in the arts and crafts realm.  (Also I forgot to get anything for it until we were grocery shopping and I suddenly remembered - oops).  I grabbed this little birdhouse for $4 and squeezed out some craft paints for the little dudes.
I spread some craft paper out for them to paint on, just to try to keep the paint off of the mudroom floor.  You can get a roll of this stuff at the Dollar store - and you can use it for everything from wrapping gifts to well...painting. 

I handed them their brushes and away they went!
I didn't intentionally give them only shades of blue, but they mixed the colors together and we ended with a pretty little blue birdhouse.
Happy Earth Day little birdies! We hope you love your little blue house!

    I think when painting with kiddos it's best to keep the colors similar or else everything ends up brown because they mix everything. At least I did as a kid. ;)

  5. Awwwwww what a fun project! It looks adorable.
