A Painting Project

The other day, while shopping for craft supplies, Miss G spotted a shelf of mini wooden bird houses and immediately got excited.  Having painted her own bird house before, she knew exactly what these unfinished little bird homes meant – getting messy and having fun, painting-style.  Knowing that her cousins would be arriving in a few days, we decided to pick up four.  Gracen was very serious about selecting four different houses and was just as excited to choose paintbrushes, paint, and bird seed.  Upon returning home {to Grandma’s house}, I quietly tucked the bag of goodies away until the cousins arrived and we were in need of an activity.

 Taa-daaa!  The finished products.  I’d say the birds will be flocking to these little masterpieces, wouldn’t you?
