We took coffee filters and cut them out into the shape of hearts and then just gently painted on them with the watercolors.
We took watercolor paper, stuck heart stickers all over the page and then painted whatever we felt inclined to. Once dry, we removed the stickers and had a very neat picture with heart shapes.
William then proceeded to just paint some more pictures. It was a great morning of color. He has always loved to paint. As we have become more busy or concerned with other subjects I have let the creating time slide. One of my many goals is to try my best to have time for creating every day. These moments are some of the best we have with one another. It is peaceful and we talk and their ideas are wonderful. I am more relaxed and less stressed as well. So it's good all around. Plus we have beautiful pictures for our walls.
One problem I am finding though is how to hang them. The boys don't want thumbtacks because it makes holes, but masking tape won't stay. Any suggestions???
